Yeah, Greg, clouds from above like that are interesting (well, sometimes). I've ridden planes too much doing business and have gotten complacent. Most of the time,they're boring but you have some really good ones. Especially the bottom one, which, for some reason, reminds me of Godzilla covered in snow...LOL. (well, it was funny to me!)

Took these the other night playing around in front of my house.

Damn, that's a really long exposure time. Do digital SLRs have ISO settings for 3200 like that? (I'm assuming you were using a digital camera)

No, for shots like that you just put the camera on a tripod and use the LOWEST ISO possible to reduce noise.

This was taken with a Canon Rebel XT which has a 30 sec to 1/4000 exposure time and also "bulb" for unlimited exposure. For a longer exposure at night you want a low ISO. This was taken at ISO 200 for 30 seconds, tripod mount with cable release. Below is some EXIF data.

Yeah, with digital cameras and the "free" aspect of pictures, you can just experiment and only lose your time if it didn't work out right. Once, with a film camera, I went to a Chinese carnival and shot pics handheld from anywere from half a second to couple of seconds. I just moved the camera around sometimes (and "painted" with light) and panned other times. 36 exposures: 6 keepers... :D

Ever do the so called "hip shot?" That's what my photography professor called it anyways.
