Sometimes I do not want to have light painting on the main foreground element in a composition because I want it to have a certain emotion. The dinosaur sculpture was created by Ricardo Breceda. The camera is facing northwest.

Battle Triumphant Star Trails: Borrego Springs Long Exposure Photo With Amazing Sculptures by Ricardo Breceda

5920kenlee_borregosprings-2015-03-20-2313-4min-76mtotal-f4iso640-battlingdinosaurstartrails-lightpainted-flatPlease click on the photo to view it larger and more clearly!  Thanks!

This is a star trails photo facing more or less east, showing the perceived movements of the stars over 76 minutes, and features two of Breceda’s battling dinosaur sculptures. I illuminated the dinosaurs with a ProtoMachine LED2 during the exposure or they would have appeared as silhouettes. The dinosaur on the right appears to be emitting some sort of laser blast from its mouth. This is actually the light trail from an airplane. It’s unusual that I leave these in, as I almost always clone them out. But the placement of this airplane trail struck me as funny, and I couldn’t resist keeping it in! The glow in the distance is light pollution, probably from the houses and resorts about a mile or so beyond. I had only small issues with bending to adjust and view the camera, not bad considering I had surgery for a torn meniscus last month.

Rattledragon Star Trails, Borrego Springs – Ricardo Breceda’s Amazing Sculptures

I wanted to create this vortex around the dragon’s head with the stars. I left the camera clicking away for 50 minutes to create this effect with the stars. All color work was done during the exposure, and is not a Photoshop creation.

The dragon sculpture was created by Ricardo Breceda. The dragon is 350 feet (106 meters) in length. I shot photos with noted astronomer Dennis Mammana the night before. There was some wind in the south part of Borrego Springs. The next day, after having dinner with him, I decided to try the north part, which seems to be often less windy.

Quería crear este vórtice alrededor de la cabeza del dragón con las estrellas. Salí de la cámara al hacer clic de distancia durante 50 minutos para crear este efecto con las estrellas. Todo el trabajo de color se hizo durante la exposición, y no es una creación de Photoshop.

La escultura del dragón fue creado por Ricardo Breceda. Está a 350 feet (106 m) de largo. Me tiro fotos con el astrónomo señaló Dennis Mammana la noche anterior. Había un poco de viento en la parte sur de Borrego Springs. Al día siguiente, después de cenar con él, me decidí a probar la parte norte, que parece ser a menudo menos viento.
