I like it. How did you get the light on the tree top? Was there a nearby street light?

Me too - and I've got the same question.

No street light at all. This was in the middle of a camp site. The light was actually from a pit fire that was about 15 feet away and the 20 second shutter picked it up very well.

Thanks for the comments.

One thing I did want to ask is if someone can tell me how I would have gotten the entire picture in focus? The branch in the middle seems to be the most in focus (although still a tad out of focus) but the right and the tree on the left are clearly out of focus. Since it was really dark my Kx could not pick a spot to focus on so I had to just guess and use the distance meter on the lens, I thought I came pretty close but not as close as I would have liked. Any suggestions?
