    Excellent job. I like the starburst effect of the light! Was this mounted on a tripod? Props to you if it was handheld :thumbup:

    Thank you! No it was shot on a tripod, it was really dark outside haha I believe the shutter speed was around 15 seconds.


    edit: wow I was wrong, it was only 3 seconds. :lmao:

    Looks good, but I have a few small technical nitpicks.

    The horizon isn't level. Also, I would have used a lower ISO and longer shutter speed. Less noise, cleaner detail. Looks like your subject isn't going anywhere any time soon, so longer exposures aren't a problem.

    Here's your EXIF Data:

    Camera Make: NIKON CORPORATION
    Camera Model: NIKON D3000
    Image Date: 2010:01:10 06:03:23
    Flash Used: No
    Focal Length: 18.0mm (35mm equivalent: 27mm)
    Exposure Time: 3.000 s
    Aperture: f/5.0
    ISO equiv: 400
    Exposure Bias: 1.00
    White Balance: Auto
    Metering Mode: Matrix
    Exposure: Manual
    Exposure Mode: Manual

    Thanks turbo, how did you pull the exif data from the photo? I was shown once, but I completely forgot.

    I also appreciate the advice, I have a hard time with leveling the horizon. I should've bought a tripod with one of those bubble levelers on it haha. As for ISO, I wasn't expecting too much noise with 400, but there is definitely more than I thought :(

    I really like this photo, the colors are so vivid it almost looks like HDR! I especially like how the tracks in the snow are accentuated by the angled light. The only issue I can see is the horizon is slightly tilted, as mentioned above. An excellent photo overall, IMO.
