hello Mikey. I really love your photographs. I am very much interested in astrophotography and have been trying it but with a high iso. I'm not sure as to what settings I need to use on my Canon 7D. Can u please give me the exif of this photo and few others so that I can try them and in due course learn by experimentation in due course if time and maybe get close to you if not as good as you. I consider u my mentor. Thank you. :)

I love the detail of the birds sleeping in the tree. Is this all from a single exposure / bracket, or has more editing taken place in terms of pulling bits in?
Mike_MacKinven
Mike_MacKinven February 17, 2016
Thanks Yani! This is a crop from a larger panorama, nothing has been added, however I have removed my wifes sleeping bag from the beach, looked like a big green slug :)
