Eclipse photos are fun

I traveled to view a total solar eclipse for the first time in my life in August. So now I’m enjoying myself a little bit in Photoshop. Here is a little composite I put together.  The only processing was a bit of exposure and gamma correction, removing the orange color from the partial phases, and rotating the images for aesthetics. I still haven’t gotten each partial phase exposed uniformly, but I’m having fun laying things out on the computer. All images are mine.

Composite of partial phases and totality during the total eclipse of August 21, 2017. Imaged from near Salem, OR. Processed with exposure and gamma correction, desaturation, and image rotation.

I’m still figuring out how to make an aesthetically pleasing composite, and trying to make the exposures appear uniform is a challenge. But it’s all fun!
