Some clicks taken from above Henderson waves bridge. It's amazing that the night sky has as much dynamic range or more as most day shots! To try out how HDR flares at night I tried taking a few. To capture as much as I can, keeping my camera on a weak desi  tripod I managed to take three shots -3, 0, +5 stop range in raw with minimal shake. Things I learned: when keeping your camera on tripod, switch off image stabilization (IS)!! (when taking long shots on relatively steady situations the IS itself can cause more vibrations than external factors). Also consider using delay shutter and mirror lock to avoid shake caused by hand and reflex action of mirror.
