Vibration Reduction OFF (Very important)

9 long exposures each one as below with self timer adjusted at 2'' after press of shutter button, with 9 sequential shots with 0.5'' interval between them. ( Important because you never touch the camera after first press)
ETTR Technique (Expose To The Right of the Histogram for sensor/light saturation and low signal to noise ratio)
+1.7EV Exposure Compensation
s 25''
f/7.1
iso 400 (because it was a bit dark for 10stop ND but too bright without 10 stop ND. If I had a 6stop ND it would be fine because I would be able to set iso 100 with 25-30''. But because of stacking noise is canceled and it works fine until iso 400-640 and even more)
The Rock

This is an image captured on my favorite park near my home.
It is a long exposure shot made out of 9 stacked exposures.
Morexp57 Morexp57 It is another example of the same technique.

And below is one of the 9 exposures I took just for reference.

As I've written before I shoot as flat/neutral as possible exposing to the Right to achieve the best possible sensor / light saturation. This allows me to have enough 'headroom' in my RAW files to retrieve Highlight and Shadows.

Int his case it was a scene of hight dynamic range with dark foreground and bright sky. So a good exposure is very importand.

Wonderful panos_adgr, thanks for sharing.
I usually use ETTR when doing landscapes for the same reasons as yourself, and checking the histogram 'in camera' is very useful for this.
You did a lovely job on the final edit, it is warm and serene with great foreground detail.
Very nicely done.

Goodmorning my friend Andy Smith Andy Smith !

Thank you for your nice comment!
ETTR is a nice technique indeed.
Me too I always check the histogram on the back of my camera as well as the clipping highlight preview in order adjust exposure accordingly.

Excellent technique panos_adgr panos_adgr ! I really like the result.
Well... it's 8am, time for me to hit the road to explore a new mountain region and hopefully bring back a decent photo or two!
