Today we are visiting one of the last locations that we needed to finalise the route. A very attractive place to photograph wildlife in its wildest environment and also to take pictures at night. Recognised worldwide after appearing several times in National Geographic and for being one of the places where Game of Thrones was filmed. Yes, we refer to the Barruecos, a paradise only a few kilometers from Cáceres.
I created this image, looking out at Otter Cliff in Acadia National Park, using 6 images. Each image has the same composition and exposure. I shot this with a Sony A7rII with a 20s exposure, f/2.8, ISO 6400. The reason I used 6 of the same image is that I wanted to reduce noise in the foreground and in the sky. The noise pattern on each image is random and not the same as the last, kind of like a snowflake. Each one is unique in it's own way. By stacking the images in Photoshop, I am able to essentially fill in data that is missing from the other images, giving a more "natural" form of noise reduction.
I prefer this method of noise reduction over any other form out there. It seems to be less destructive, overall.
What are your thoughts on the image and the process?

Cuba is literally a rolling car museum. Everywhere you look is an old-school American brand vehicle, ranging from Oldsmobile to Chevrolet, Buick to Ford with a nice sampling of Chrysler’s old Plymouth brand. #positivenegatives#photographyworkshops#cuba#Havana
