Fantastic shot. I like the idea of using the flashligts to light up the arch.
Have you tried doing any star trail shots with exposures 30mins to several hours so the stars turn into lines? I think this would be a great location.

Default To GrahamB: re: 30 sec

Actually not, since digital camera would have too much noise in this case. I am still thinking of bying a new canon film body for this kind of purposes ;-)
Thanks!

Hi Eugene
If you are going to buy a film body just for this type of shot then I would go for an old manual everything one, with very little electronics, form a used camera shop. If you are doing a very long exposure on a modern camera the electronics are still humming away while you take the shot and you will flatten the batteries very quickly. On the old cameras all the battery powers is a simple light meter and you don't even need that on a night shot.
Have fun.
Graham

Thanks, Graham!
I didn't think about the batteries. Nice remark. I think I'll follow your advice!
Thanks again!
