Submit a photograph of an outdoors scene at night. -- There are two basic approaches you can use to photograph this difficult subject. Traditionally, you use a camera mounted on a tripod with long exposure times. Alternatively, you can use a fast lens and high ISO to hand-hold an image. These trade off convenience and equipment cost versus image quality.

The highest mountain in the Europe, the Elbrus mountain shot from its southern slope in one early summer morning. The eternal snow and volcanic stones are illuminated by moon, and the peaks are illuminated by aurora. Stars leave arc curve tracks on the sky due to earth rotation, and the alpinists going up draw their path with the lanterns (see on the right peak).

|Focal length:||26 mm|
|Shutter speed:||1400 sec|
|Notes:||This is a compilation done by a technique similar to multiple exposure in order to make star tracks longer. 7 frames 4*6+3 minutes at F/5.6 make the total exposure time approximately 23min. The eighth frame (13sec exposure at f/11), shot in the morning was added in order to improve the red illumination of the peaks.|
