As this if my first shot at startrails, I would like like your honest C&C.

Canon 6D @ ISO 1600 w/24-105L @ 24mm f/4.
254 30sec frames ~2 hours.

I walked a few KM into the desert to get away from the light pollution. I guess it didn't really work as you can see in the left side of the frame.

I pointed a small LED flashlight at a rock that reflected the light at the tree.

I shot RAW. LR4-> JEPG, then I ran the JEPGs through Startrails.

Nice, almost surreal. If it wasn't for the tree, this could look like an alien landscape

That's VERY cool. I especially like the low perspective and blurred foreground.

Thank you! I think I'm going to go to a darker place this Thursday to have another go (with less light pollution).
