The title is kinda catchy; but the image doesn't measure up. Just not a lot of interest here. I'd try a different composition and maybe different lighting. Could you get the sun behind the tree? Could you have moved left and composed tighter on the tree and draw in more of the interesting action in the clouds on the right?

Why such a long exposure?

A few times I would have to go with a long exposure because the other settings worked better than if I changed them. I see this was shot at f/9 but probably could have been shot at 5.6 or maybe even 4 since the subject is so far away. But then again, like I said, maybe the longer exposure setup looked better. If you have other shots with different settings I'd like to see them as well.

Composition wise it could be a little better but the lighting is pretty darn good here.

Shampoo sounds like an unfortunate name for a hair product.
You're a ghost driving a meat-coated skeleton made from stardust, riding a rock, hurtling through space. Fear Nothing!

thank you very much for the cc. yes i could have gotten the sun behind the tree. i do have pictures of the composure to the left. the sky was changing rapidly and i was unprepared.

thank you for the reply to my thread. i simply used f 9 because i have found f 9 is where my lens is very sharp. i didn't think the slower exposure would affect the image. i was using a tripod so slow ss wasn't an issue.

thank you for replying to my thread. i appreciate the cc! i have many other images from the same night. the settings are basically the same, but the compsure and sky are vastly different.

Second shot is much more interesting. If you use Lightroom or Photoshop, you might try sliding the blacks down (darker) as Olaf is suggesting. If you get a chance to reshoot, give HDR a try.
