Taken during the evening….not flattering, but the stars turned out beautifully (in my opinion). The lit-up building is the Iraqi Ministry of Health.

This is strangely beautiful and compelling. I love the soft focus guys head of to the side of the frame. I’d love to know what sort of capture you used. Digital I’m guessing. If you can get you hands on an old analouge and try to do some very long exposures at a very small aperture in this same sort of spot with all the towers and stuff in the forground that would be pretty mad. There are some excellent star trail shots on this site that you might like to look for and most of them have info on how to do it as well.
But what ever its a great shot, like a movie set or somesuch thing. Well done.
