Excellent night shot, I love when you capture stars, especially if its a really long exposure and you can see the light trails behind them. Love the slight detail in the building aswell.

@danthro: Hi Danthro. Yep, this was one 30 second exposure. It's basically as-shot, just sharpened a little.

Really really FANTABULOUS!! The framing of the pagoda gives great depth and scale for that night sky of stars. I've never been really successful with my night shot attempts. Guess I need to reach for the stars, eh?!! HAHAHAHA
