    For some time already I'm thinking about a project on night shots of my orchards, including some old, small houses the farmers used in the past to shield themselves from the occasional rain, or used overnight when working in distant fields. Tried some timelapses too, but that really needs practice.

    I think some shots turned out ok - at first I thought I messed up by having a full moon out, but with some improvements I think I could have some good shots. Here are the tests, please let me know what you think, thanks!

    Interesting shots. I like the last one. Wouldn't mind seeing more of the dead tree though.

    Thanks!

    @ Randy - please do so! I think the full moon may help when/if you want to have more focus on the landscapre, rather than the stars (and in that case, I found having the moon out of the shot helps)
    Otherwise, better go out when there's no moon.

    Next time (in 15 days, no moon!), I'll need to try and use a flash for lighting the stone buildings, maybe the effect will be different.

    I'd like to see your variations on my shots, do let me know when you make them.

    @Jason

    Will include in the frame when I retry the setup with some amendments!
