I took this photo with my Nikon D7000 -- which is my favorite camera. Here is a link to a good deal on one through my Amazon store.

Nikon D7000

Exposure: 4 seconds

Aperture: f/22.0

Focal Length 35 mm

ISO: 400

 

To get this shot, I climbed the grassy hill overlooking the carnival that runs alongside to Reston Parkway. Luckily, I got the shot I wanted fairly quickly after setting up my tripod, because a security guard came over and told me the area was off limits...

 

The two big starbursts from the street lights are the result of the tiny aperture (f/22). A larger aperture would have resulted in some type of halo around the light.
