This was my only natural light night photo. If I had known, I would have taken more. In fact, the next morning my colleagues told me they were able to see stars on one dark side of the sky. I actually walked around the area at night, but everything was too pitch dark for any meaningful photos.
In the morning, when I awoke at 7:30 am, it was already bright. I should
have taken the foggy surrounding, but I went back to sleep instead. :-)
I thought a long exposure would bring out these two lights, but I did not expect the water to reflect the sky light. A very nice surprise. If I had known, I would have taken more night photos.
30" at f/5.6 is actually only 4" at f/2, so I don't actually have to wait that long. I didn't bring a tripod. I just rest the camera on an even surface and fire away.
In Vuescan, the gamma is set to 1.4 and the brightness is set to 1.
