SEAL ROCK
Well, I have only been out once this year so far for serious photo trip.
So far this year, this is my favorite shot. Hopes for many more this year that I can add to my favorite shots list.
Taken in Northern AZ, on Navajo Land. This is a long exposure night shot, converted to B/W. Someone on POTN called this "SEAL ROCK" The name certainly fits.

Magnificent rock formation! It really works well in B&W. Where in northern Arizona is this? On a reservation? It doesn't look familiar to me.

@Shawnwc- What lens and settings did you use to obtain that picture? i've tried capturing stars a few times with basically no success. they just dont show up, even when i set my shutter speed to 10secs. granted i don't have an L lens in my collection yet, so if thats all it is then i would be happy as i'm getting one soonish.

Off to a slow start this year, I know. But just testing out my newly-acquired Lumix LX-5 here.

Crap! I just realized today that there would be a 2011 thread. 26 pages to catch up on now.

So far...

Regarding SEAL ROCK, how did you stop the stars trailing?

I was fine as long as I kept the shutter under 30 seconds.

I shot this with Canon 5D, 24-70 f2.8L, wide open to f2.8, ISO 320, set my shutter 15sec. The L lens is not what I needed, just Practice, patience, & experiment with your settings. An 18-55 f3.5 could pull these off. I was anywhere from 3sec to 25 & 30sec on some of the nite shots. You will want to have a remote trigger, We did have a guy setting his timer since he didn't have a trigger with him. Getting the light to your sensor is the key.

Thank you, The color was OK but I thought the B/W worked well on this too.
This was on the res outside Tuba City area.

Yep, that's my rule of thumb also (with wide angle lens)... under 30 seconds is fine :)

Not like 281 seconds for my "Valley" LOL

@Shawnc- So when you set the shutter open that long do yo use the mirror lock function as well? i noticed you said to use a trigger to trip the shutter, i assume this is so you dont get the slight motion in the camera of depressing the shutter. is this correct?
