finally a decent long exposure (IMHO)

Mostly, i just havent had a chance to break out the tripod in an area conducive to long exposure trials. my wife and i went on a cruise to bermuda during the past week and spent a night docked in bermuda. so there's probably a bit of motion, but my favorite is #7070. had i had a laptop with me, i would have tried again after 7071, because despite the clouds, that one looks to have the early makings of faint star trails, which i think coupled with the clocktower building, would have looked awesome....but for reasons i can't recall, i stopped after a few more not-so-good attempts.

anywho, i was particularly happy with 7070, so much so that im now using it for my desktop wallpaper for a change.

just felt like sharing

Not bad. You'll find star trails coming through after a couple of minutes of exposure, and they're only visible with large apertures and a slight boost in sensitivity - not suitable for bright lights in the scene such as this. But it's still a nice capture for what it is.
