Had to push my lil XTI to iso 640 to make up for not having a shutter release cable to buy me more than 30sec, even still I think it cleaned up nice and gave me the result i was looking for:)

I think you did well ! What lens did you use and how did you keep the lights from being blown out too much ?

shot wide open with a 17-85 and the lights were clicked on than off as fast as i could click the switch;) still burnt a lil more than i would have liked, i could have cranked up more iso and tried for a faster shutters speed, but i felt i was already pushing the iso envelope with the Xti.

Very nice. More than that - It just needs a wall to hang it on.
What impresses me most is that instead of using HDR and photoshop, you used a camera and your brain.
Both are working well.

bw! IMHO.

Very, nice. You could have left the lights off for a while and switched them on for a bit to the end. Or start with it on and then switch them off after a short stint. Good shot and it looks stunning

I could not turn them on and off enough quick enough to avoid blowing them out in the first place and not sure it would matter if I flicked them at the start or end of exposure, I would think if anything it best to do a start of exposure?

thanks for the advice though and the compliment:)
