Full moon light over Upper Yosemite falls viewed from the deck of Swinging Bridge just past mid-night. Kodak Ektar ISO 100 film and exposed 15 minutes using the bulb mode. This was my first try ever with night photography.

This is wonderful, especially for a first attempt at night photography. In my experience, Ektar is an outstanding film for night photography because it has excellent white balance and no reciprocity failure. Ektar should also render much greater resolution, even at this size, so I think this photograph would benefit from better scanning.

Thanks. Yes, better scanning could have rendered this a lot nicer. The thrill was I had no clue as to how it will come out in the end.
