This photo was taken with the natural light with about 30 seconds exposure. I setup the camera (Nikon D700 + 16-35mm.) on tripod, then I used Nikon SB-900 speedlight for manually shooting the foreground. Taking Long exposure photo allowed me to walk and fill light with the flash for several times. If my memory served, I set up the flash about 1/16 or 1/32 power then fired 5-6 times from foreground to the church--the Church of the Good Shepherd. The favourite shot looked like a scene from childhood fairy tales. And, I hope this will be the greatest gift to my mom.
On my birthday, 16 January 2012, I sent this photo to my mom and wrote this message to her:
"Dear Mom, I cannot thank you enough for all your always supporting and believing in me. I would not be the person I am today without your constant patience, guidance and love. Thank Mom!! For giving me birth : ) Love you so much."
