On Like a firework in the Grains challenge (13 comments in total)

Very nice picture. Only thing I'd do here, is removing the little fly in the middle of the picture.

risto40: I was taking photographs of stars first time, 2 nights in row. On the 1st night I could photograph only around 15minutes because I went out too late and soon clouds filled the sky. I managed to capture only star-trails, but no falling stars. In the second night, last night, went out earlier and I took pictures during an hour. Success. Finally one nice falling star appeared in the direction where I was pointed my camera.
Here are 5 pics I took: http://www.hundiurg.eu/imgs_to_dPreview/dPreview.php
The last one is from the 1st night, others are 2nd night. I must say, I like falling star without startrails more (seems cleaner/clearer).
Tech: Taken with good old Canon 40D+17-85 @17mm f4, iso 1000-1600. Lot of 30sec pictures blended together.

Thank you, I'm glad you like!

> But...shutter speed-> no way 15sec...maybe 15min or 150min!;-)

the author said 600 pics were taken. So, if i'm correct the total time was 15sec x 600 pics = 9000sec --> 9000/60/60=2,5 hours if there weren't time lags between shots.
