My First star trail
Star Trails at Kep Beach F/5, Speed: 226 sec., ISO:200

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.

    There is no way i can increase the number of the stars:) But if i have noticed the trails at the first place, i could have dragged the shutter speed so the tails would have been longer 😦
