    I've been wanting to try this for a while, but just never have until tonight. These are my 1st shots trying to shot the sky at night. The subject matter isn't the greatest. Any help/critique on these are much appreciated. All shot were 30 sec. exposures, F2.8, ISO 200
    Thanks

    1.) I think my personal fav.

    2.) Big or Liitle Dipper ( I forget which is which)

    3.) Tried to get the pine tree treeline

    4.) I like the tree in the foreground

    These are so great! I am trying to perfect night time photography myself although nothing near as good as these!

    Thank you April. I still need to experiment some and obviously find better foreground subjects.

    Hey 8Ball. I am using a D90 with a Tamron 28-75 2.8. I'm going to try to up the ISO a bit and see what results I get.

    look into getting a remote, then you can do longer exposures at better apertures and keep your ISO's low.

    Also, get out of the city, at least 50 miles out to get away from the light pollution, THAN you'll see stars

    I think even though #1 COULD be considered not the best subject, it still works in its simplicity. I like it - and think I'll try the same!
