I took this last night,the moon was full and was was bright,i liked the light it was giving and it lit up the subjects here very nicely.

The spiral stone structure o the right(Echo) was illuminated on the inside by candles

Thanks Stewart,yes the 5D mk ll is excellent for night time photography.

Hi Richard,i was using my Tamron 10-24mm lens which fits the 5D mkk ll but is not really suited for it,it really distorts the image however i do like the exaggerated leaning of the subjects on this image.

It worked well and it makes nice contrast with cold blue sky.

Great shot. Like Stewart said, the MkII produces a top quality image. Nice use of candles, somehow i've never thought of that!

It most certainly does - it is a great image. I used to have a Sigma 10-20 zoom but sold it in a moment of stupidity and have regretted it ever since. Thanks for the info :smiley:

What a fantastic shot!! I think your video is also superb. I assume you used some sort of motorised linear rail to get the tracking shot. What this a home-made affair, or a ready-made set-up.
