Fire Station 109 ::::: NASA Crows Landing ::::: March 2013

Building 109, the fire station, at the abandoned Crows Landing airport, a NASA and Navy auxiliary field in California’s San Joaquin Valley.  I stopped down to f/11 to buy some extra time because I knew it would take me a good six or seven minutes to run thru the building, adding light in all the offices.  398-seconds, full moon and red-set Protomachine flashlight.

    Do you turn on LENR for this image? It seems very clean for single 6-7 minutes exposure, love the subtlety of this image.

      No, I never use noise reduction. If you do a 4 minute exposure your camera is tied up for 4 more minutes after you close the lens? No thanks, I have other stuff to shoot! NR is easier to handle and control in post than in the camera in the field. Besides, if the weather is cold, you can go about 10-12 minutes without too much noise, with modern dslr’s.
