Hey Dawg, as you know I am a newbie, and I have gotten all the stuff you recommended and I have been practicing taking pics, trying new things, etc.* I hope to post some pics very soon, but would you mind telling me the exact settings on your camera for these pics and how you took them.* How do you hold the exposure for that long?* Probably stupid questions, but I would appreciate the help. Thanks!!

Hi Lerxst. All digital photos have exif data ( camera settings, date, time, etc) embedded in them. Get yourself a program called an exif viewer and you will be able to read that data. Here's the one I use, its simple, just install it and right click on the photo, and best of all its FREE
http://www.opanda.com/en/iexif/index.html
Some resizing programs and some postprocessing programs will remove this data, so it's not always available on every pic, but it works on the majority of em

High Lerxst! I use Manual mode to set the exposure time! With my DX6490 I can set the camera for up to a 16 second exposure! Following are the EXIF Data for each photo in order that they were posted in! Also Dan's right about that program. It works on a lot of photos but mine seem to loose it in posting! Here we go.......

Dawg, just to let you know, I can read the exif on these shots with the Opanda.
