Startrails over Idsworth Chapel. This attempt was cut short due to the camera lens misting over. I have been back several times but still have not achieved what I am looking for.

nice long exposure here, the stars look great

building... well I've not seen it in real life but the left side as we look at it looks interesting - so maybe getting both sides more visible would help make the foreground more interesting

also a bit of torch work to illuminate it could really make it stand out, just a subtle going over, not too much

do like the fence, that looks cool

Ade's advice is spot on and as he says the stars look great but I just have this nagging thought that it would look better in landscape format and nearer the fence and building but great shot all the same

superb capture
Pity about the mist
Anxious to see what you do have in mind with this setting if this is not it
Wow!

There are a couple of things you can do to delay the onset of condensation, notably use as deep a lens hood as you can get away with, and use a small battery powered fan to keep the air circulating around the lens (you don't need to do it constantly) and you can use a small hand warmer and blow that air over the front of the lens. Insulating the camera and lens with something like fleece will also slow down the rate of cooling.

I would like to see a deeper blue sky, so less exposure (more time, smaller aperture), which will also help accentuate the different colours of the stars which blow out to white with overexposure. Composition wise, this is fine for me, giving space for the sky to display it's majesty.

I would have expected more curvature of the star trails with a wide angle setting, and I would like to see a shot from further around to the right, putting the pole star over the church which would cause the circular effect over the building.

I love that church and belive it is one of the oldest in the country. I can never figure out why they have an electric lit cross on the front though. Lovely place just to sit.

nice shot with lovely star trails. Would probably try more contrast in the building though. Nice.
