I always like to take a look at the finished shot and just evaluate what worked well and what didn't. We did a lot of experimentation on this shoot with different settings. And this particular scene is one of the most experimental, so there's plenty to learn. The longer exposures here in the ten second range or so create nice streaks of energy. The real short exposures, while noise-free, just don't feel that special. Where it becomes problematic are some of the longest exposures. While the lighting looks super cool, you see that it's just impossible to get rid of the noise in the sky.

And it becomes particularly problematic as the sky gets darker and darker.
