    I was wondering if I could get some advice on taking night shots. I went out last week in an attempt to get some good full moon pictures, but they all turned out like the one below. And then last night I went out and tried to take pictures of the light in the front of our house, and they just didn't turn out.
    I'm new to night shots so I wasn't sure what I should do. All I can rememeber is I had the shutter speed at 30''.

    What ISO film wewre you using?

    It will be worth re-sizing your pictures a bit smaller to make it easier for people to see them on here too!

    If the moon is burning out you could try adding a ND filter to step it down and bring out the details a tad better on the ground. The first picture would be tricky in getting the filter aligned to darken the moon while leaving the foreground in the clear.
