Stunning image, James! Be nice to know some technical details.

Thanks very much David. Was taken with the Samyang 14mm F2.8 prime (a brilliant lens for night photography). A 30 second exposure (a 100% crop shows the stars have moved a little but at 25 seconds I have to ramp the ISO up so much more). F2.8 at ISO 3200.

Another stunner, nicely done. Do you prefer the Samyang or your EF17-40mm/L?

I'll give it 6!

What's happening here? Light can't be like this, can it? No, it's not real! Absolutely awesome exposure and resulting photograph. Have a 10!

Thanks all.
Dan - I use them for different things. The 17-40 is my standard climbing and landscape lens (and it takes filters). But as it's F4 it's no good for static star shots as the ISO has to be set to high. It is however great for star trails as you can stop it down to around F5.6 (sharpening up the corners), keep the ISO low and at 40 minutes exposure ish you should get enough light. The Samyang at 2.8 just gets more light in for 30 second exposures, and at 14mm you get longer before the stars trail. Is also great for some climbing photography (like Alastair Lee's latest two photos I suspect were taken on a 14mm prime - albeit a more expensive one than the amyang I imagine). However they do create a lot of distortion so you have to try and keep your subject in the centre. Hope that helps!

Nice work James, its a simply stunning image, the composition just works perfectly.

ACR can sort out some of the more radical distortion problems associated with an extreme wide-angle lens though James.

Great shot James love the almost monotone appearance, nice comp as well...good work pal.
