    I like the attempt, not bad. I might have been tempted to use a "sharper" ISO because this frame looks a little gritty to me. I can't see any traffic movement on Commonwealth Ave. Bridge so think you would be safe to use a much longer exposure which could well have had the effect of producing more pronounced "star" effect on your lights and might even have pulled-in some heavenly stars? Unfortunately you can't get a shot at Venus from that angle but you might have got "lucky" with a couple of stars over the back of Red Hill, what do you think?

    I've been wrong before!! Happy to have constructive criticism though.Gear used Canon 50D, 7D & 5DMkII plus expensive things hanging off their fronts and of course a "nifty fifty".

    G'day Steve

    Hey mate - 19 secs on bulb?? yacooda dun that on Tv !!
    Seriously tho - as far as star-burst goes, have you experimented with the inbuilt digital filter called 'star-filter' [pp227-228 of the manual]

    ps- see you in 1st week of December when I get back to A.C.T
    Regards, Phil

    thanks for the interest Richard. will have to go later at night and see what i can get. city light glare will probably affect stars showing but will have to try and find out.
    cheers

    Yes, you're probably right, I suppose Kingston and Manuka would be throwing up enough light to prevent real stars from capture
