    Welcome on board C in C. That's quite a dramatic entrance, coming straight into the monthly competition. Good on you.

    Not sure if you're inviting comment on your images. If so, probably best to post them into one of the other sections (e.g. Nature and Architecture) becuase we don't normally comment on images in 'competition' threads until after voting takes place.

    You should put soemthing int the Intro thread to tell us where you are, what camera equipment you have, what you like to shoot (apart from bugs on flowers!), etc.

    Trouble with uploads

    I don't seem to get this quite right. My Brad post always seems to disappear until I go into edit mode and re-save it. Then it disappears again. What is wrong?

    Gerry,
    I had issues with posting and Donald steered me to a thread for a soup to nuts run down of what to do. Go to the 7th post in this thread, it is from Donald, there is a underlined link. It will answer all your questions.

    The Shining Tree

    Here is my entry for this month competition: The Shining Tree

    I took this shot last night. With such a long exposure time (1377 seconds, about 23 minutes), the final effect completely changed my initial perspective of this tree: the moving cloud combined with the star trails, warm tone from a lot of artificial lights around, and finally the moon light sheded from the sky behind my camera, all made this shining tree.

    EXIF data:
    Camera: 5D Mark II
    Lense: 16-35mm/2.8L II
    Shutter Speed: 1377 seconds (22.95 minutes)
    Aperture: f/8.0
    ISO: 100
    Filter: GND 3-stop (soft) (up-side-down used to block city light behind the horizon)

    Hi Yan,

    I think they should rename that tree in your honour!

    I'll tell you one thing that always amazes me ... when on an evening shoot the exposures can be made longer and longer as the ambient light levels drop ... and 19 times out of 20 the best shot of the shoot is the last and longest one; the worst part is the sheer boredom of waiting around all that time while the camera is exposing - but it's usually worth the wait.

    Re: The Shining Tree

    Colin, Thanks for your advice. This tree has given me a lot of opportunities for practice I had tried to find different foreground subject for night shooting around here, but seemed not quite successful.

    Re: Trouble with uploads

    Thx, Zack, but I got about 6 pages through the 35 and gave up when I still hadn't gotten to anything beyond "Welcome to the club." Maybe Donald will come along and enlighten me as to the secret of posting on these threads since I don't seem to get this very complicated and arcane project! Thx., again.

    I've PM'd Dave and Rob, as Mods. They should be able to get under the bonnet/hood (depending on which side of the Atlantic you're on) and hopefully see if they can fathom out what the problem is.

    Off memory, I think I deleted the original post from Gerry quite a while ago ... it didn't have a picture attached / included, and I didn't get a response from Gerry when I mentioned this in a post - so possibly that's part of the "problem"?
