I was out tonight a little past midnight and found what appeared to be an abandoned building, complete with broken windows and all. Of course, I was there for other things so I didn't have a camera. I'm going back in the daylight to check it out for safety and if it's good, may go back in the night for some shots. There's a street light across the street that should be good. Maybe I'll even have a moon if it stops raining here.

I've caught some Hell for the tilted horizon line, but I still like it!



I spent a lot of time on my roof, taking in this view. I miss NYC!

Just for something a little bit different:







I took this series of shots during a 10-hour overnight bus trip from Zagreb to Ljubljana several years ago. I couldn't get to sleep so I placed my cheap digital point-and-shoot on the window and took several 15-second exposures whenever I came across some light. For some reason, out of the hundreds of photos that I took whilst in Europe, I always come back to these images. A time traveling alone, in winter, visiting cities that I'd never even heard of before.

I have seldom photographed at night. Here is my latest one from this week. I think I will be shooting at night more often:

Just outstanding, beautiful.

Love it!
What Film? Or digital?

Edit: Strobist? Looks like a nice light-setup in the first 2 pictures.

Digital. I'm not a huge fan of reciprocity failure and color shifts when dealing with 15-30 minute exposures. No strobist or blending, just trying to use available lighting to my advantage.

How long was your exposure on #2?
Great shots all of them. I understand Mars will be close to the Earth on August 27th, I want to get a few shots of that.

Hoax.

http://www.snopes.com/science/astronomy/brightmars.asp

Here is what is happening--scroll down:

http://www.skyandtelescope.com/observing/ataglance/

If Mars is actually going to be at its closest approach this August, which it isn't, you would need to work at focal lengths of around 4000mm or greater to photograph a very small red disk rather than a point-like star. You would also probably want a tracking mount used in astronomy.

Wow - there's a lot of really impressive street shots in this thread! Thank you helenhill, urban alchemist, zeroeseight, tom.w.bn, buzzardkis, menos, semrich and coelacanth for your beautiful night visions.


Munich's most popular kiosk at the bank of the river Isar is open most of the night on summer weekends.

Digital capture; enhanced with a combination of two white balance settings - daylight for sky and sky-lit parts (shadows), tungsten for artificially lit parts of the scene.

Thanks. If I recall correctly it was right around 35 minutes.

From a Summer Solstice gathering.

So so proud of my friend. Final treatment last week:


Tossing small trees and uncut logs into the fire

Fire was about 1/3 final size here and throwing off some heat and light..

I love the time between dusk and dark when the sky gets that deep purple-blue color. I call it "purple hour". My "mid-purple-hour" rule is 4-4-4 (1/4s f/4 and ISO 400), which is the moment the sky meets the brightness of city street lights (sky at 90 degrees away from the sunset). Only problem is, using this 4-4-4 rule on digital the lights are a little bit blown out in the highlights. Slightly earlier, I back off to 1/8s and I do better with the highlights
