Sunset at Toen

Nikon D60, Nikkor 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 @ 18mm, 1/80 sec, f/22, ISO 100 -- EXIF

After meeting those 4 boys, I kept driving along the coast looking for a place to photograph the sunset. I came to a beach just past a small village called Toen.

Nikon D60, Nikkor 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 @ 22mm, 1/250 sec, f/6.3, ISO 100 -- EXIF

Nikon D60, Nikkor 55-200mm f/4-5.6 @ 200mm, 1/80 sec, f/5.6, ISO 100 -- EXIF

Nikon D60, Nikkor 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 @ 18mm, 30 sec, f/3.5, ISO 100 -- EXIF

This was kind of the shot I was after that day. I wanted to have the stars in the photo, but still have a gradient sky. I took several photos with different settings, but this one turned out the best. I realize it's ISO 100, but when I upped the ISO to 400 or more I got terrible noise and photos just didn't look nice. The shots I took with ISO 200 had a ferry on the horizon and all you get is a light blur on the water so I didn't use them. I want to try this more in the future, but I'm going to have to study about how to take these kinds of photos a bit more. It would be nice if I could get the photo a bit brighter and still have the stars clear and bright in them.
