    Thats cool, i tried it a couple of times in a forest near my house, gave me some pretty spectacular shots.

    Another thing thats cool is that you shot this on film, respect for that, im a film shooter my own, i wont go into detail why cuz then i'll get banned here :p

    anyway nice going, maybe a bit more texture in the sky would have been pretty but seeing as you had an exposure of more then 2 hours that would be a little hard :p

    keep up the good work, try finding and old shed somewhere or something like that, object light up really nice with this kind of exposure, and with the stars twisted up like that, i should get you a cool effect ;)

    Thanks Grass.. you know what i love film tooo!!! digital's cool but nothing beats film yet :p
    oh well i am learning a thing or two shooting digital.. but my fave medium is and always will be b/w film :D
    I'm not going to be able to shoot any more star trails toh.. this is my first and last pic for a bit.. i'm back home from the trek and around here.. it's impossible to have clear skies... if it's clear then its the damned pollution :p I'll still try however..
    i wasnt very happy with the shot.. but i'll pass coz its a first.. next time i'll do better :p
    Thanks for your comments :)
