Hi. I think at f/16 you are making that a bit harder for you. I guess at f/5.6 you you get roughly the same result at a fraction of the time of 16 seconds. Each stop wider would allow more light to reach the sensor faster and record the image sooner.
Good mono subject I like you kept the shadow of the tap in the frame.

Pablo: Many thanks for your comments.I chose f/16 for depth-of-field reasons. My camera was quite close to the subject and I wanted to catch whatever reflection details I could in the far faucet. See my reflection in bottom left as an example. Also, my goal in very low light situations is usually to make the exposure as long as possible, not as short as possible because I feel details get richer the longer you expose them.
