Jamaica at night

This night shot with stars was taken on a Fuji X-Pro1 and 14mm lens shot wide open at f/2.8. The exposure was 17 seconds at an ISO of 1600. I used a high ISO to keep the exposure time down because I find that 30 seconds is about the longest you can go before there is too much blurring in the stars as they move through the night sky.

Moonset over the ocean with a crescent moon.  The moon is much brighter than the rest of the scene so its exposuter washes out.  I took some exposures just for the moon and will substitute the coorect one when I return to my studio computer where I have better control than on the laptop I am using while I travel.
