    What setting are you using to shoot these? How long are you keeping the shutter open, what aperture, what ISO, etc??

    I love the night shots!

    exif on 1st one:
    Exif Sub IFD

    * Exposure Time (1 / Shutter Speed) = 649/10 second = 64.90000 second
    * Lens F-Number/F-Stop = 80/10 = F8.00
    * Exposure Program = manual control (1)
    * Exif Version = 0221
    * Original Date/Time = 2007:07:28 09:15:42
    * Digitization Date/Time = 2007:07:28 09:15:42
    * Components Configuration = 0x01,0x02,0x03,0x00 / YCbCr
    * Compressed Bits per Pixel = 4/1 = 4.00
    * Exposure Bias (EV) = 0/6 = 0.00
    * Max Aperture Value (APEX) = 42/10 = 4.20
    Max Aperture = F4.29
    * Metering Mode = pattern / multi-segment (5)
    * Light Source / White Balance = cloudy weather (10)
    * Flash = Flash did not fire
    * Focal Length = 310/10 mm = 31.00 mm

    exif on second one:

    Exif Sub IFD

    * Exposure Time (1 / Shutter Speed) = 649/10 second = 64.90000 second
    * Lens F-Number/F-Stop = 80/10 = F8.00
    * Exposure Program = manual control (1)
    * Exif Version = 0221
    * Original Date/Time = 2007:07:28 09:15:42
    * Digitization Date/Time = 2007:07:28 09:15:42
    * Components Configuration = 0x01,0x02,0x03,0x00 / YCbCr
    * Compressed Bits per Pixel = 4/1 = 4.00
    * Exposure Bias (EV) = 0/6 = 0.00
    * Max Aperture Value (APEX) = 42/10 = 4.20
    Max Aperture = F4.29
    * Metering Mode = pattern / multi-segment (5)
    * Light Source / White Balance = cloudy weather (10)
    * Flash = Flash did not fire
    * Focal Length = 310/10 mm = 31.00 mm

    it really helps to have a remote for night shots, camera shake is a killer. and a fast lens is usually a pretty good idea also. night shots like the 2nd one should have a full open aperture( even though i used f8) as you dont need to control the DOF as much because the light of the moon almost does it for you. the 1st shot however i used f8 for a balance between speed and DOF.

    just experiment with you camera in manual mose as much as you can, the better you know your camera the better your shots will be.

    It looks to me that the shoreline on the ocean is slanted a bit. (or maybe it's my eyes). A tilted horizon can be easily fixed in photoshop however.

    I really like your shots, night shots always give me a challenge!

    An HDR of this could be killer, quick exposure for a dark sky and detailed moon, then long shutter for foreground to horizon.

    yeah it is tilted, i fixed it in picasa but i guess i didnt save it. HDR would work quite well for this, good idea. i will have to try it next time i come across this scene.

    The first image is spectacular. Definitely a wall hanger.
    Until I read the comments, I assumed that it was HDR.

    yeah if it wern't for the blurred moon i wold have it printed already. but nah its just a 65 second exposure. if it was HDR the moon wouldnt be blown like it is. thanks for the positive comments tho.

    The moon shining through a haze can only be one of the elements of the capture.

    If a perfect moon means so much why not photoshop a moon into your image. But then you might have a conthrived moment in time rather than a captured moment in time.:scratch: If it were my photo, I'd straighten the horizon and hang it.
