For Photographers: - How I took the image
I had the tripod as high as it would go, so that the jetty in the foreground had enough space around it, not clashing it with the background. Doing a few test
exposures showed that this image suited overexposure, and this image looked best at 2 stops over the meter reading. Using 1600 ISO kept the stars as points of light
rather than trails, but also meant the image would be noisy. I had to carefully run it through 'Noise Ninja' Photoshop plug-in to remove unacceptable noise, whilst
using the History Eraser to bring back some of the foliage edges (which noise reduction doesn't do well with).
