Let Me Shine

This is my favorite tree located in Werrington South campus of University of Western Sydney. This photo was taken in an evening. With exposure time 1377 seconds (23 minutes), some star trails mixed with cloud movement were captured over the lone tree. Since the moon was hung up in the sky behind my camera, the moon light made the tree shining too. The warm color presented here was caused by artificial lights near by. A 2-stop GND (soft) was used in the up-side-down manner to reduce the city light below the horizon.
