    Mini Me is correct. there was literally NO light where i was. what i saw with my eyes is not the bright looking sky that appears in the photo. but instead, it was completely pitch dark (it was 1am!). i had to open up the aperture and raise the ISO as well as long exposure in order to get the photo to look that way.

    i could've used lower ISO and smaller aperture too, but that also means i will have to sit there in 20F temperature for 1/2 hour. which i wasn't prepared to do. haha.

    ..did you take additional dry test runs or was that the only capture??..lower ISO and smaller aperture will probably make it a bit sharper, but yes, probably by the time the shutter opens up, again, you'd be half frozen..

    at short exposures a smaller aperture will usually give you sharper pictures but not at 160s. you can have your camera set on the world's sturdiest tripod but that doesn't help the clouds, water, trees, etc stay still enough to give you a sharper picture. you'll also have to contend with distortions due to air movements.

    Default ^^The..^^

    ..only result i can think/imagine of, if kwun were to use a lower ISO, smaller aperture & same amt of shutter speed, and taken with the exact condition when the picture was taken, is a darker picture.
    Thus my initial question on whether kwun took a few other shots or was that the only shot he took?
    Thank goodness mother nature/uncontrollable elements cooperated, considering the exposure time (shutter time) used.
