Balsam root and Sunset by Connie Cassinetto - from her latest article
This grouping of Balsam root, with the setting sun behind it, was shot with a Nikon Z7 24-70 lens at 1/1600 second at f/22, ISO 800, and a focal length of 40mm. I was attempting in this image to balance my desire to get a sun star with declining light, a lot of wind, and avoiding poison oak! Due to the f/22 aperture (to get the sunstar) I got a lot of noise in the bottom right corner; if I could do this shot over, I would be more careful with the balance of the settings to see if I could get the image with less noise. I was happy with the overall composition.
