Buskett in streetlight

By KingArthur
After an afternoon of shooting along Dingli Cliffs, me and brother Edwin settled down around the Buskett Woods for a round of night photography ...

The winding country lanes gave us a good blend of streetlighting and shadow along most of the woods ... I eventually got hold of this composition, the weeping bark and the lighting over it getting the better of me. Quite a lengthy exposure at 25 secs, though reveals lovely detail. I added a burst of fill-in flash during the exposure to fill in the shadow area of the bark. Should be viewed large to appreciate. Thanks for viewing.
