Fantastic pictures - exposure spot on showing lots of details.

The photos were good, but the exposure was not "spot on" unless
you think the rocket flame was the subject and not the rocket itself.

Only the first one was properly exposed -- the other three were
way under exposed. Compare rocket body, launch pad, and
tower exposure with the first.

But keep in mind that a night rocket launch is the hardest possible
subject to expose properly. The exhaust is brighter than the sun
(it can cast a shadow in daylight) and anything in shadow is as dark
as night.

Cool photos though.
