This photo was taken at 2nd not 1st of 2011 at 05:39AM. I did not intent to have the star trails but just wanted to have the smooth sea. Yet as I do not own any ND filter, I had to no choice but to shoot when the light is very low. I did not even see the star trails when I viewed the LCD monitor soon after I got this image. If I had seen it, I would narrow the aperture and drag the shutter speed for a few minutes more.
