Obviously when I got the new cam, I was trying to apply the settings that I knew and worked for the old one, which didn’t always work well and not at all with the night shots. I was trying to capture this for awhile, than gave up on automatic focus and switched to manual. That’s what made the difference. (Klick on picture for larger view).
Taken with the new camera Canon EOS 1000D.
Manual focus, tripod,timer.
I dindn’t notice the clouds until I saw the photo on the display, but wow! What a luck…
