I'm a noob, but how did you achieve the starburst effect from all the lights? Great shots!

Great location for nite pix... yeesh, what a well-lit park. Not like the ones in my neighborhood. Not sure if it's me, or if I like it or not, but the Lumixes always seem to produce a six point start on the lights, as if they had an effects filter.

Use a smaller aperture to generate the star effect.

It will more pronounced at f8.0 than f5.3 amd much more than using f2.8.

The starburst effect was achieved from a combination of 8 second shutterspeed/2.8 apeture and 432mm zoom. The wider shot with less star effect is 137mm zoom.

Nick this park is actually quite dark, I had no idea i could do this with a camera and long exposures. Heres an example of how dark it really is.

2 pics shot from same place and same time, just different exposure 1/4 second and 8 seconds.

do you manually press the shutter button or use a remote control? I found that the act of pressing the button blurs the image, sometimes..

Great pics!
