Great shots. Thanks for sharing them with us.

Did you use anything to achieve the 6-pointed star patterns on the lights (filter or screen), or is this just the result of the aperture blades?

Thanks Jon,
No filters or anything else , just the aperture blades (F22).

Very nice, Alex. I like the second one the best.

It is hard to get night shots. I spent a lot of time week before last trying to capture the Mormon Temple at night in Salt Lake City. Didn't have a tripod with me and was using my husband's camera with the viewfinder blocked by his extension for the filters. I'm not very good without a viewfinder I discovered.:-)

Thanks Patty,
it was really nice to do that pictures, playing with my new remote control and the tripod.
And especially having the tiime to experiment a little bit.

But my lessons learned from that is to take the laptop with me the next time, to make it easier to see how the pics will look like . i found it hard to control that on the display only

bye alex
