Wow that is a long exposure, how do you prevent the tripod and camera from anything that could cause shake?

It's a 10 minute exposure so minor movements are eliminated by the long duration, but a sturdy tripod is a must. Mine has a hook at the bottom of the center-column to add weight (usually my camera bag) for extra stability www.mefoto.com/uk/products/roa…

And lens stabilizers should definitely be turned off.

Oh, do you use mirror lock up? I tend to use it for night shots, but on a recent trip I forgot to set it for long daytime exposures.

For the really long exposures I don't bother but slightly shorters ones, yes.
Are you experiencing unsharp results or is it just curiosity?

You're welcome by the way ;)

Ah, I see you live(d) in Sri Lanka? 
I've been there for a month in April/May to visit a friend. Such a beautiful country and people. I actually miss it now.

And thank you for the wonderful compliment. I was trying to create something unique :D

We have a house up in the hills 15mins from Unawatuna...............my place of peace. We rent it out when not there.
I think one of the nicest races in the World but like everything this is changing as more money arrives. I was born in SL in 1949 and the changes break my heart.
So glad you enjoyed your visit.......a lot of people go back and back again.

For me it is unuque............well done. :blowkiss:

That sounds like a wonderful location already.
I can imagine that a lot has changed. The path to indepedence and all the political unrest it caused, ending in civil war. Natural disasters like the tsunami and more recent mud slides. It is not a very fortunate country. 
And money corrupts...

However, despite all of that, serendipity ;)

It is.........we have quite a large piece of land with huge old trees in the back.
Yes......very frought.............but Jungle declining and tourists not respecting the environment. Too many huge Coaches!

Yes it still is.
