My goodness, he likes to photograph 10 times darker than he really is. It was SO bright too. I'm starting to think I'll never get a picture of him flaring, he's so skittish around mirrors, but that's okay.
I try to get pictures like that with my Tokina 100m f2.8 lens... but it rarely happens.
Love your shots! Were you using a tripod?
I tried to use my tripod but I've misplaced the mounting plate for it. :c
Sokka and Zuko's tanks are in my room so I piled up all the blankets and pilllows until I got something steady enough, so I did use a makeshift tripod.
