that is a good result for a night shot and the cam you are using!!! If you have a a tripod, next time try it with timer delay (to avoid shake) and put the cam in night time mode: You should get flash and a long exposure, also use LED torch light if you have one. It is possible to get great results from pocket and bridge cameras... ya just need light! Wink

Roger, thanks for your tips ... technical side is that the Lady was about 3 metres above my head, so I had to mount the tripod on two planks across a wheelbarrow, and then to stabilise the tripod by suspending a weight, to wit, one pumpkin, from its centre. Tongue I was using a headlight, and as I had to focus, use remote, ensure light was on the subject, I wish I'd been born with three hands!! Over three evenings, this shot was worth about 4 hours, as she kept moving her web. I've been a proud owner of am HS20 DSLR camera for a whole four weeks now. Wow! Cheers, Justin.
