Indeed, that's beautiful!
Those look like long-exposure (at least 10-second long exposures anyway) photographs to me. Am I mistaken? I've never actually seen the Northern Lights so I don't know how much the light tends to move about; how quickly it undulates that is.

I can't imagine staying out in the cold too long though for those shots, so I assume they move pretty quickly!

These are photos with fairly long exposure time, about 10-15s, with low iso. I have one with higher iso and only 2-3s exposure time. The big photos of beautiful things Kt7Y6mrqg4ARMiX8iw0B6ez-fIYC64oB989P-7H8_ck=w622-h412-no
This last one is taken over 6s w/iso 3200

Is that fog rolling in ? Looks mythical, can imagine a white ship for Grey Havens slowly appearing

I think it was receding, and the lake was reflecting it so you didn't know where the fog ended and the lake started creating quite an atmosphere. I don't know how well the pictures capture it though.

It's quite a nice lake. Smile

Its pretty much what it sounds like- you bleach the picture, burns out the whites more, makes it a bit glowy round the edges.
Bloom lighting does something not dissimilar in end effect but only really effects highlights- the brightest points in all the colours- unless it has a submenu of course where you can individually alter high mid and low ends of the spectrum too. Its also softer round the edges than the bleach one.
