Vagabond, I like that one!
Peter, fine use of the wide lens to draw in the whole scene, but without perspective distortion.
Oscar, I still love her expression, just great... I guess disapproving of your snapping? Or just having fun with you?

Thanks Doug, that was the view from our apartment window when we stayed in Madrid earlier this year. Sorry about the blown highlights, not sure if its the development or my lousy scanning.

Thanks Doug

Doug,

Thanks for the kind words about that shot.

Quite a while ago I had seen some night time shots on this site and that inspired me to start lurking through the streets of Philadelphia looking for possibilities.

Hmmm, that doesn’t sound right, does it? Anyway, thanks.

Bill

it seems like during the winter the night is the only time to take pictures, heh.

I have a few in my gallery, and heres 2 more.

One taken with a Industar 22 and the other taken with a panasonic lx1, an honorary rangefinder IMO (which was lost/stolen earlier this year...).

Honus, I live in the east bay and was curious to know where that was taken from.

Richie,

There is a park on Middle Harbor Rd. near 7th St. in Oakland. This was taken in that park looking back to the Port facilities.

Nothing like the Port of Oakland at midnight to get the hairs on the back of your neck excited.

Thanks to this thread, I started looking into trying out long exposure, night photography. Visited the nocturnes and learned a bit about reciprocity stuff.

I'm still confused All the sites say that above certain time (e.g. 1s 2s or 4s or 2m, whatever), you have to start adjusting for the r. failure. First question: how exactly do you know how much of a factor to adjust the exposure time by? And second.. how do you know what the initial exposure is supposed to be? The meters in my camera don't "work", i.e. doesn't look like they go beyond a few seconds, and then I must use bulb. Do I need an external meter.. or.. err.. hmm.

Thanks
Jano
