    I wont even lie to you. I'm not sure. I kept the shutter open for 5 seconds. the rest was auto to the best of my knowledge. I also sharpened the image in PS by following someone's steps in another thread. :D

    Nice shot, but maybe next time you should go do some long exposures when it's not completely dark outside. I'm pretty sure you will get better results if you do it when it's not completely dark outside.

    cool thanks for the tip, if it wasnt 6 degrees out right now I would go give it another try.

    what would you suggest I do when it is dark outside?

    Yeah, it looks pretty good. i'd just tweak the color balance and cool down the color temperture.


    And since you've been asking so many questions lately and been asking how to make your photographs better, you might want to think about putting "My photos are OK to edit" under your name so that we can show you how things are done in photoshop, or other software.

    Chicagophotoshop: If you want to know about the exposure values with which the photo is taken (ie. ISO value, shutter speed, aperture, etc). You can right click on the original photo (for Windows), then choose "Properties", go to the "Summary" tab, then click "Advanced>>" There, you should see the EXIF data of the photo. Hope this helps. I have learned a lot from looking at the EXIF data when I started photography.

    I can't tell if that's noise or stars. How many stars can one find above urban Chicago?
