This is one of the pictures that the editing process created a whole other world and atmosphere. One of my favorites.

52 in 2021 Challenge - #4 - Dusty

This is my photo for the 52 in 2021 Challenge – #4 – Dusty. I was wandering around the house to find something dusty and didn’t have to look too far – this is the top of my computer desk. I didn’t realise how dusty it is – time to get the duster out.

Flaming star and Tadpoles Nebulae

Flaming star and Tadpoles Nebulae

After what seems like weeks of cloudy nights, last night I grabbed an unexpected few hours of clear, frosty sky and headed 1500 light years away to the Flaming Star (left) and Tadpoles (right) Nebulae in the constellation Auriga.

This shot took 5 hours to expose, a stack of 97 images, each 3 minutes long and was then calibrated with a further 140 calibration frames. With time at the computer to edit all the combined images the whole process took about 9 hours in total.

reality distortion field

reality distortion field

Reality Distortion Field (RDF) is a term coined by Bud Tribble at Apple Computer in 1981, to describe company co-founder Steve Jobs’ charisma and its effects on the developers working on the Macintosh project.

Tribble said that the term came from Star Trek.

Later the term has also been used to refer to perceptions of Job’s keynote speeches (or "Stevenotes") by observers and devoted users of Apple computers and products.

The RDF was said by Andy Hertzfeld to be Steve Jobs’ ability to convince himself and others to believe almost anything with a mix of charm, charisma, bravado, hyperbole, marketing, appeasement and persistence.

RDF was said to distort an audience’s sense of proportion and scales of difficulties and made them believe that the task at hand was possible.
