    Hi Tom ..
    These long exposure shots are from 6 seconds to 20 seconds and camera has to be on Tripod.

    Were you using a starburst filter, or is that what the PL25 does?!?!?

    Hi..
    I dont use any filter. When you step down to F8-F16 , these starbust will appear around lights. If you shoot wide open , you wont see them. Squeeze you eye and look at light bulb in your house . Its the same principle.

  8. That looks about normal for the PL25 when set to a small aperture. The 14 rays correspond to the seven-bladed aperture.

    really nice shots Bhupinder.

    THey really are good. I just notice it must be late at night.
    There seems to be very few people aorund. So please be careful as well
    if you are taking these photo by yourself.

    When I was there. couple of people stop by and ask me for money at night.
