I'm pretty sure I stopped down to f/11 to enhance the sunstar.  That is my personal favorite aperture on most of my lenses for achieving the effect.  The arms on the sunstar become more defined.

Thanks, I'll try to keep that in mind. Still, I'll have to be patient; when I cycled home from work today I looked at the trees, and they're all still green! Well, I can wait because I don't particularly like winter ;)

I'm in no rush for winter to arrive either!  I get burned out in shooting what is essentially monochrome!

I was able to take a few, but yes, there is some traffic coming and I think this was about the last of the series.

Dustin, did you do any distortion correction on these shots?

I just got the Sigma 35 1.4 and haven't used it yet (too busy :( ) but I have a real taste for going out shooting with the 14mm. Let's see which lens will find its way to my lens mount first...

I have a Lightroom profile that I downloaded from the Lens Profiler, but other than using that at import, I don't really mess with distortion correction on these.  If I were shooting architecture, I would spend more time with it.

Beautiful shot, Dustin. May I ask what your settings were? Did you use an equatorial mount of some sort/did you stack multiple shots?

That's the crazy thing about the Rokinon - it allows so much image in the frame.  This is a single image.  I just used a typical tripod (Manfrotto 190xb) with mount in a vertical position.  It is a 30 second exposure, ISO 1250, and I think the aperture was f/4 (no EXIF from the Rokinon  :-[).  I've basically only changed the white balance and played with the tone curve a bit.
