    At 1728px wide, the photo is too large for web presentation, we always suggest (actually put it into our Forum Guidelines, to be found under FAQ) that you present photos no larger than 800px wide (horizontal frame).

    This is fun, given the fact that it must have been a black sky around you.

    The vest way to take these kinda pics would be to lower your ISO, that would help reduce the noise as yours was set at 1600 which I think is the highest you rebel can go?

    To help reduce the bluryness ensure that your tripod is not moving in the wind, also use your self time to stop your camera moving when you press the buttton or a remote cable release

    It is cool what long exposures do at night-I agree!!

    I cannot resize your too large photo for you, other than "stealing it" to resize it on my computer and then store it in one of the accounts of the picture hosts that I use. Seems like you'll have to resize it yourself.

    The noise derives from the high ISO you chose (ISO 1600), even though at a wide open lens (f4) at the lowest possible ISO (100) a 20-second-exposure would not have given you a photo this bright, of course. If you wanted to produce a photo that suggests almost daylight but stars in the sky then choosing the high ISO was the way to go (or a bulb exposure of I-don't-know-how-long ... but loooooooooooooooooong!) - only do you then have to live with the noise. Or put the photo through NeatImage (for example) ... but you will then lose even more sharpness, I'm afraid. For something did move the tripod, some wind, something...

    For what you were trying to do, kudos mate. I dig it. Noise is going to be a factor period when shooting at that ISO speed, but thats not the point here. Keep on experimenting.
