30 seconds timelapse of view from the new Inderhavnsbroen bridge...

Yes, I have been a rare guest here on G+ lately. Service is not forgotten, but just don't get much attention at the moment. But to show I'm still kinda active, here's my very first attempt in the #timelapse genre. I used an Astro (http://orderastro.com/) which I got from a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign a few years ago, but haven't actually used until now (although it has been in my photobag on numerous trips and other occasions). It's a smart little device to control the camera for timelapse recording including a slow rotation of the camera during the shooting.

My first attempts is not without beginner mistakes. In this case I had forgotten to turn off bracketing in the camera, causing a third of the photos to be underexposed by 2 steps and another third to be overexposed by 2 steps. But I think I was able to adjust the photos to very much same general level in Camera Raw. However, there's some flicker in the highlights, especially the sky to the left at the beginning of the video. That's because every third image (the overexposed ones) has burned-out highlights.

The Astro was configured to shot one photo per second in 15 minutes while the camera slowly rotated (as I recall) 90 degrees. Camera was shooting raw files with manual exposure and manual focus [But because I had forgotten to turn off bracketing, the shutter speed still varied even though I was shooting in manual mode]. Color temperature was set to auto, but that is easily made consistent in the post-processing. The photos was processed into a 30 frames/second video in Photoshop CC.

Canon EOS 7D Mark II, EF-S 10-22mm @14mm, f/8.0, 1/40 - 1/640s, 100 ISO
