Midnight Sky

This is a 30-second exposure taken at midnight with a full moon. It's rather soft because of the long exposure, wide aperture and undoubtedly some camera shake from the strong winds that were blowing (despite me holding on heavily to the tripod). I tried it in B&W (which would seem more "night-ish") but I like the effect of the color and bright stars in the same exposure.

I did very little to this exposure: basic levels adjustment, and a blurry unsharp mask to slightly increase contrast.
