Second Attempt At TimeLapse

I thought my first attempt at Time Lapse came out fairly well.  All I did at the time was set it up and hit go.  Yeah… there were a few more steps, but that was the forethought.  Pretty jazzed about those results, I tried a few more things, without luck.  One note: if you expect a spider to do anything, even after you poke a few strategically-placed holes in his web, maybe reconsider.  Anyway, I liked the little taste of long-exposure nighttime action in the first time lapse, so I set it up at sunset this time.  What do you think?

I also did a little more processing on this one.  Instead of leaving it at defaults, I did some contrast correction and resized the photos down a bit since they get resized so much in the end anyway.

One last word about taking stills for a time lapse at night.  During the day my battery was lasting for hundreds of shots with no problem.  In this sequence, I only got just over 200 before it died since the night shots had shutter speeds of 30+ seconds.  If I was going to do it again, I’d crank open the aperture a bit more to make the shots a bit shorter and get more life out of the battery.

UPDATE: For another more recent time-lapse attempt, see me building my fence.
