Re: y'all done good!

Hi Mike,
here is a 100% crop.

Manual mode, shutter speed 90 seconds per shot, Manual Focus, set around a little before infinite, ISO 640, f4.5, 2500 kelvin degrees. Used my Iphone as intervalometer, 3 beers, one sandwich and 5 cigarettes
No postprocessing, just RAW to JPEG.

I"ve been very curious about how the 1ds III would do with start trails, and I'd say its very good. It'd be nice to see the image at 100% for better analysis (after all, it is a gear forum).......and sharing the exposure details/processing would be helpful. (ISO shutter speed, Lens, etc).

Thanks........look forward to more.
