Just got back from a mini vacation. I managed to snap some photos. This one was exposed while drinking some red wine straight out of the bottle on the beach. This was in Charlestown RI, facing south looking at Block Island. Think on this: What we are seeing here is the arm of our spiral galaxy. Billions of stars form the cloud we see as the Milky Way. Makes a person feel mighty small. 2:13.7 exposure, 18mm, ISO 800 (noise reduction was a pain), f/3.5. I'm sort of disappointed in the star trails. They're not long enough to add that dramatic element, yet I think it's a cool photo. Anybody got any hints on dealing with them?
