Hi Empyquiver,
Like your pic. Like the color in the sky with the stars and the perspective of the pole.

Thax..it was more of an exercise for me, after studying other night photos. The Totem is just there for foreground material to test what works and what doesn't. I can go out there and play with the camera and learn what many on here have discovered years ago.

its a pretty cool looking shot.

did you use a tripod? looks a little noisy like you upped the ISO to handhold

I took about 50 shots of this starting at dusk and running up to 2230 hrs. A tripod was used, along with a Tamron 10-24. At a focal length of 10 and stopped at 3.5 and a shutter speed of only 6-8 secs. My ISO was in auto and shuttered out at 800. When I had decreased my shutter speed to say 10 or 15 secs, my ISO then shifted to a lower value reducing the noise factor. One can read this informration but it will not sink in unless you play around, look at the results and decifer the photo info as to how particular settings have impacted the photo. As the following pic shows, when lowering the shutter to 30 sec, it had decreased the ISO to 500. Still high, but more acceptable to the eye. It all really comes down to playing around as Ive mentioned and learning from the flaws. I got a ways to go...I know.

I like the sky from 1 and the pole from 2.
