That Windmill Again

After a long wait for a cloud and dust free evening at last an opportunity presented itself to tackle the La Oliva windmills, or in this case just one windmill, with a starry sky. Unfortunately the milky way didn’t show its face or at least not the galatic core.

The lights of La Oliva meant that a fairly low viewing angle is required so as to ensure they are excluded wilst using a wide angle to capture plenty of sky means that converging verticles are inevitable.

I tackled this subject with both my PL 8-18mm (my least used lens) and my even wider Samyang 7.5mm fisheye (perhaps my favourite lens).  To my eyes at least the “somewhat” cheaper Samyang has perhaps produced the sharper images, although one caveat to this is that it was at time a little windy so maybe the PL 8-18mm images were impacted more by this than the Samyang.
