Interesting light at the gym tonight. The trees looked quite stunning when illuminated by the gym car park lights, then there were the stars. I didn't want to use a high ISO, so selected ISO 400 and used a tripod. Aperture f8 and exposure of 30 seconds. The image intrigues me. It's similar to what I saw. Stars aren't as pinpoint as I'd like, but I've almost caught the atmosphere. I suspect a more stable tripod is required for such long exposures and probably I should have locked up the mirror, used a remote shutter release or used the self timer. More of my night time shots here. Any comments? Tips for night time shots?
