Still learning

This photo shows why you should buy high-quality filters, or remove them when there are bright points of light in your photo, especially when using bulb mode. I wonder if using a graduated ND, mounted upside-down would have helped dim the house lights a bit. Exposure at 18mm, f11, 682s. Nikon D90 ISO 200 18-105mm AF-S VR. I'll try to remember to open up the aperture next time :P

Glimpse of the Milky Way

I took this shot a few weeks ago on a trip to Bohol. For some reason, it's a little more difficult to take pictures of stars here than in Zambales. The tree is very visible because there was a lamp near it. f/3.5 at 30sec, ISO 1000, long-exp NR.

Faint stars

I like this shot, even though i forgot to open up the aperture. The stars would have been brighter at f3.5. Shot at f/10, 30sec, ISO1600. The lamp looks like it's from the 1920s, except for the CFL installed inside.
