    Went for a long weekend away with some friends and went on a bit of an evening shoot, reasonably happy with this one.

    Thanks all :) It was a 2 minute exposure, ISO 200, f/5.6. I would've liked to have spent 30 minutes or so and done some exposure stacking to get some longer star trails, but my tripod was slap bang in the middle of a road.

    I shot it on redscaled Fuji Superia X-Tra 400 film. Redscaling is basically just flipping the film around so you expose the wrong side of it. Rather than describe how to reverse the film, I'll just give you this link instead, since it has pics :)

    You need to overexpose by something in the region of 2 to 4 stops to account for the light loss through the base layer, I shot this ISO 400 film at ISO 50.

    RwD - looks like compression artifacts galore. But I like them, especially the second one.
