I like your title, too, but not better than the picture! The photo is beautiful! I've been trying to do some night shots and not doing well at it. This one is just great.

Thank you, Jean, for the compliment. I don't know what types of problems you're having with the night shots - the basic idea is to keep the camera as still as possible while you shoot. A tripod is a must, and a remote switch removes all doubt. Then it's a matter of how long you leave the shutter open (underexposure vs. overexposure). For me, the digital camera is a boon, because of the relatively low cost of processing prints, plus the immediate feedback of seeing your results on the computer.
Thanks again.

My friend showed me a wonderful trick in lighting like this... When shot in raw, you can change the lighting to look less incondescent(sp?) and really punch up the effect. Very nice shot!

Thank you for your input. I've not yet experimented with RAW - I think I will try because I need a new challenge in my photography.

Godspeed, Josh and family...keep your faith strong always, my friend - don't ever back down.

Your unworthy servant,
