Moonlight Gannet Colony

13 second exposure at ISO 100 and F1.4 with a Samyang 35mm.

Dont think I could have taken this pic half as well without some of the ML features!

-Used the FPS override set to 5fps, and LV display gain to focus correctly in the dark. (as it was dim moonlight only)

-Used HDR picture mode as exposure bracketing to quickly get a picture with the exposure levels I wanted, while spending a minimal amount of time out in the cold smelling like rotting fish and gannet poo  :)

I didnt shoot it with that white balance, I shot as RAW and then chose it that way intentionally.

I like it being blue, I think it makes it look a bit more surreal, gives a cloudy looking appearance rather than looking like the sea.

It's in no way a 'natural' looking pic regardless of white balance, no long exposure is in my opinion.

Thanks for constructive comments though, I see where you guys are coming from.

Looking forward to getting out there a bit more as summer is just starting to come into swing here. :)
