Startrail in Monksville, NJ. I had the pleasure of shooting my first Startrail shot ever at the Monksville reservoir. It was a very cold night with some humidity and very quiet space. Took a 200 shot with 20 second exposure using my Irix 15mm 2.4 with Nikon D750.

I would say the image is too bright for a "night shot".
With a foreground that isn't that interesting, grass and trees. that aren't truly in focus.
There is also something funky going on on the edge between the sky and the trees.

The star trails do look good, but yea, I would have kept it a bit darker.
