You may not be able to tell from these images, they have been scaled down to 2500 pixels wide. However, if you could see the original 7952 pixels wide images, you’d see that they are not focused properly. This is part of why I continue to say I’m “practicing” long exposure photography. I continue to mess up on some of the important details and on this morning, did not zoom into the pixels on the camera screen after my first shot to double-check the focus. Because I lacked focus, the images did as well. As a result, I took about 20 photos from various spots along Ridge Route Road next to the 5 freeway, but only these two are even remotely useable.
