    Real Name:
    First try with long exposures. I feel like I failed. San Francisco Oakland Bay Bridge (new span)

    ISO 200 32mm F/20 21 seconds. crazy moon burst. Out of camera.

    Same pic with minor editing in Lightroom

    Chasing lights. Out of camera. Pretty happy with this one. (raw image converted to jpeg in lightroom)
    ISO 200 40mm F/16 21 seconds

    Can't wait to have free time to try it again. Feel free to leave your suggestions and criticism.

    I like what you did here. I've been meaning to work on a few of these myself but have been distracted by other projects (and a very cold winter). Thanks for sharing!

    Yes, the 12-40 does create some CRAY-ZEE flare when light rays enter the glass just right. I thought it was just my use of f/2.8 to f/5.6 in some of my own night shots, but I see you're getting the same even at f/20. I'm simply taking it as part of the "character" of the lens. Oh well…. :hmmm:
