Nothing special about this. Just a standard wide angle lens with the aperture set to i believe around 16. Pretty much as narrow as i could go with the max 30 sec exposure before bulb mode while keeping the iso and noise to a minimum.

Thanks for the comments.

pretty neat effect how the gaps between the trees at the top creates a wending line...

Beautiful shot, love the colors and city in the background. Composition is very nice and love how the trees lead up to the city. Nice work.

Stunning, can hardly believe this is straight from camera. You are a very good photographer indeed. Look at those starbursts and color in sky. 10.

Very nice. I really like the finger-like trees.

I love the line created by the gap between the trees on left and right - it leads me in a slight zig zag down the frame and to the night-light buildings at the end. Cool!

I love this photo, it's my favourite of the challenge. I like how the trees don't quite touch at the top, leaving a little "road" through the sky. Beautiful!

Nice job on the lights and exposure.

Very nice. It has an almost graphic sense. The trees are like willowy hands reaching up and over. The lights really are beautiful with their 6 point "stars." Great leading line and the symmetry really works.

This is totally excellent, in large measure due tot he fact that the reaching branches have somehow managed to define a zigzag path through the sky towards the buildings; there's no interlacing of the trees. Also, the preservation of the fine twig detail is remarkable without use of sophisticated sharpening algorithms. If I had a quibble here, it would be that the image is leaning half a degree to the right, but how you gonna figure that setting up in the dark? And the rules won't let you rotate. So... Good job!
