45 minute exposure as ship left - heading out to open water, then off to the left on the horizon —- and waiting ship then entered the harbour with the help of tugboats. Pic was topped off with the tug boat streaking across the scene to settle in for the night. (Live Composite Setting)

I found it interesting to see how the use of light affects the look of the image, when using Live Composite mode. In the photo above, the clouds maintained some definition, even after 45 minutes. This happened because I started the exposure when there was still a few minutes of light in the sky. The remaining exposures as the sky turned dark, had nothing to add as far as bright areas - so the blurring from a single long exposure did not happen to the same degree - nor did the overall brightness change - just the streaks and highlights in the water as light sources passed by.

This photo, taken later on in the evening has a total exposure of about 3 or 4 minutes (made up of many 4 sec exposures as a result of Live Composite). The lit areas are bright and would never look overexposed, even if I kept going for an hour or more at the same iso and aperture and shutter speed settings.

The camera is in the same position as the one posted above - with the same exposure and mode settings. Nothing changed except, that I took this pic after the one above —- when it was totally dark and the ship had been moved into position for filling it and the tug boat was docked on the right side.

No other camera can accomplish this effect in the way that Olympus does. And the effect of a Time Exposure would not replicate this effect. Live Composite is unique and I love finding different ways to make use of it.

Anne and I headed over to Lake Huron tonight, to just sit and relax in the car for a few hours. I took this shot in Live Composite - starting the exposure when there was a hint of light in the sky. I set the camera to the Vivid colour setting, for a little more intensity. Even with the heavy clouds, Jupiter managed to shine throughwith striking brilliance, at times.
