Total Solar Eclipse Composite Sequence

Recommended Posts

Taken at the 21st August Solar Eclipse at Menan Buttes, Idaho. A composite of 15 frames. Five were of the first partial phase, taken from just after first contact until just before second contact. A filter made of Baader Solar film was used and exposures were 1/400s. Five are during totality, various exposures to reveal Baily's beads at 2nd Contact, prominences, Inner Corona, Chromosphere, and 3rd Contact Diamond Ring. The second partial phase was taken in the same way and exposure as the first partial phase. The colour cast of the Baader film was corrected by an adjustment layer in Photoshop.

One of the most nicely presented Solar Eclipse sequences I've come across. Would make a lovely poster print. Good luck in the competition. 

I had it printed on a 30"x20" poster (using Photobox). Prints very well. May look for a more specialised printer where I can imbed the printer profile and see how it improves.
