Thanks Everyone!


If you got here from the explore pages, leaving me a 'Fave' would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Just returned from a field trip to Malham, Yorkshire. Went with about 40 other AS-Level Geography students in my year, the geography was fun but for me the photography made the trip. The Tarn is around 300m above sea level and about 5 miles from anything so this is what I saw at night. I am disappointed with the performance of my 450D and Sigma for Astro, but if I'm honest it's pretty good for a first try?


Please let me know what you think of this and how I could improve, both in post and at the time. Thanks.
