This is my 1st shot taken with my new t2i. Not post processed at all. Straight out of the camera.

Either you have a really great camera, or you're a really great photographer, Spence. Or, there may be a combination of the two going on here. ; ) Cool shot. Where did you find all the stars?

Just got a new camera, that's got higher iso settings, last week. I've been real excited to try it out, and can't wait to get down south and take some shots like this, further away from city lights, and with some good silhouette subjects, like arches, in the foreground.

very impressive Spence - fine composition as well as exposure - we just dream about seeing the stars so bright and low to the horizon here :)

Thank you Graham. I hope you're well.

Very impressive indeed. I wish I could find skies as dark as this one. 30 seconds at f/2.8 and ISO 3200. Amazing. The darkest sky I've ever seen here allowed me 30 seconds at f/4 with ISO 200, so 32 times brighter!

Thanks whoelius. I'm very excited to get further away from the city and try it. This is only about 1/2 hour west of Salt Lake City (that's where all that yellow light to the right horizon is coming from).
