Notes: One shot in manual mode. Used a small tripod sitting on top of a trashcan with a 5 second exposure to light up the castle. Set the in-camera flash to 2nd synchro (flash at the end of the 5 seconds before the rear curtain closes) to expose my daughters in the forground. I used a white paper napkin in an attempt to diffuse the flash somwhat.
