Portland Nightscape, Dorset

Portland Nightscape, Dorset - Dorset Seascapes
This was taken in 2009 so pre-olympic development although the marina already existed at this stage. I particularly liked the ship in the bay far right. I kept my exposure time to 10 seconds which is long enough to create light trails, but short enough to prevent them burning out and looking ugly. I had to take the ISO up to 1600 but thats not a problem these days. These pictures are always best not long after sunset when the sky is still blue.. don't wait until it's black as that will just result in no detail in the sky and lots of noise/pixelation.
