Weird tree colours are from two different coloured street or building lights in the area.
I'm really fond of star trail shots. I like how you centered (more or less) the north star on the tip of the tree.
yep i agree, pretty cool shot.
Very nicely done. How many did you have to shoot to get the trails centered?
Wow very nice, l really like how the tree points to the centre star.
None, though I had to freeze my ass off for a few minutes trying to get polaris lined up with the treetop (which is hard, since the viewfinder is too dim to really see stars properly). You can find polaris by looking for the big dipper, following the line made by the two stars furthest away from the 'handle' "up" until you get to the first bright star.. bingo, polaris.

very interesting, i like it alot, although i myself, is having a hard time figuring out whats goin lol...
or wait is that snow falling ?
PreludeX- it's a long exposure of the night sky. The lines are the stars, which appear to move as the earth revolves.
In this case Walter has the north star lined up perfectly, so the tracks of the stars are circular. If you used a long enough exposure the tracks could theoretically join into a full circle.
wow, crazy, thats still awesome!!
Here's another person's take on it. The one named "north star."
Nagala, I love your avatar.
Separate names with a comma.
