Hi Webejamn, thanks for your kind words. I took around 120 Shots stitched together for this shot. No Light painting needed for this Shot as I had a full moon behind me that gave the natural light :)

Behind The Lens

Location
I captured this Image in South Australia, just outside a little country town called Greenock in the Barossa Valley.
Time
It was after 8 o'clock at night and took around about 2 hours to capture this Image.
Lighting
It was a full moon, which was high in the sky behind me, which helped shed light on The Ruin and the field around me. I also used a torch on the house to gain a focus point.
Equipment
I used a Canon 5D Mark III, with the Canon 17-40mm L Lens. Tripod was used and an Intervalometer.
Inspiration
I've driven passed this amazing ruin many times and I could picture a star trail taken from it. So I waited for the Perfect night under a full moon with clear skies and asked the land owner permission to be able to be on there land and capture the Image. It's just so breath taking and Inspiring to be able to take such Images, with combining the Moon and the Stars and how the world turns, to put it all together and create such a image as "Star Trail Ruin".
Editing
Yes I used a program call StarStax to combine the 140 50sec Exposures I took which blends them all together to create the star trail. It an amazing piece of software, I highly recommend it if you wish to do start trails!!
In my camera bag
I have a Canon 5d Mark III, Canon 7D, Canon 17-40mm L Lens, Canon 24-70mm L Lens and the Canon 70-200mm L Lens 2.8. I also have a Number of Filters, Remote, Intervalometer, Torches, spare batteries and spare cards. Cleaning gear and a few other odds and ends.
Feedback
Firstly Star Trails are amazing and every Photographer should try it at least once. For me, I locate a place which I think would make a great foreground for a Star Trail shoot. Now very Important, if your In the Southern Hemisphere, you need to point your camera to the South and in the Northern Hemisphere you need to Point to the North, that's the easy part! So keep this in mind when you searching a good location, if you have a compass this will make it much easier. Once I have a good location suitable, I wait for a full moon and a clear night. Camera Setting can differ from place to place, depending on how much light is around you, best to search Youtube and google on more information on Capturing Star Trails. But it is most Important you gain a good Focus, the way I I do it, I use a Torch and get a focus point of the subject your using in the foreground for your star trails shot. The biggest tip I can give, is Practice, Practice and Practice some more, you'll get the hang of it and really love the results. It's a lot of fun to do and can be done with other photographers at the same time, that gives you someone to talk to while the camera is capturing all the magic! Good Luck and have fun!!
