    I just got back from grabbing these pics... it's BRUTALLY cold out there tonight... below zero. But I like the result. :) What do you think?

    I really like that second image !
    How did you expose that ? It looks so light and open in the foreground.

    Thanks.

    I had the camera set to aperture priority with the following settings:

    Tv: 3.2
    Av: 6.3
    ISO: 800
    WB: tungsten

    That's all natural, no PP.

    tv3.2 is that 3.2 seconds ? That would explain all the light :))

    Thanks for posting your settings.

    Yup. Definitely tripod territory. :)

    what do Av and Tv stand for? I know Av is used for Aperture Priority, but then Tv is for shutter priority, right? If that's the case, I question what the A stands for in Av?

    The a stands for aperture. The first is a little underexposed, if you shot raw, you could boost it. I like the second though.

    I really love how the trees in the foreground or so bright. really nice!
    every time i go outside in my neighborhood to take pictures I cant help but feel odd. I have to look every direction to see if someone's looking and then ill go inside. I feel weird hahah

    I did that on purpose, I wanted the attention to be on the glowing trees and not so much in the details of the houses. I think some creative cropping would help accent this.

    I'm sure I looked funny... driving around with a camera and tripod quickly looking out of every window in my car as if someone were chasing me. :)

    Not to mention it was below zero last night here and people have to think someone is play goofy to be sitting out in that staring at trees. :)
