Hi All, I have just started experimenting with night pictures. One reason I kept this tree up until now is that I wanted to get a good picture of it, which I have not achieved so far. I used a Nikon D70, aperture priority, f14, incandescent white balance, spot metering and a good tripod. The shutter remained open for almost 3 seconds. Is this the best I can expect or am I doing something obviously wrong? Thanks for any suggestions.
