awesome mood here, terrific light & shadow play !!
Thank you Karen, I just this bank of the Yarra and all the different moods it presents day and night.
I cant do night shots to save my life! Love the sense of mystery created by the pools of light and dark !
Hi Berns, thank you ma’am. Well one of my prerequisites in buying my camera was to take night shots without a tripod – I hate carrying one and using long exposure times just creates blurred people on the move (and it takes all the fun out of shooting on the fly). But the Pentax K5 is unbelievable in low light – this was taken at ISO6400, f3.5, 1/60 sec and Lightroom took care of the noise pretty well. My holy grail is taking people on the move at night, I love it to death. Your FujiFilm might go up that high and still have low noise – try it.
Dark but very engaging!
Dear Mel (still having trouble with the Mrs!) thank you for venturing out from your well lit luscious landscapes to the lurking dark of Melbourne – very glad you were engaged ;-)
Moody yet darkly appealing at once.A place to tell tales….or hear them.A watcher’s paradise. I love it.Soaring,sass
A watcher’s paradise… oh yeah! That’s for sure. Jump the light band, step 5 paces forward, turn left, stand on tippy toes and peer through the grating and this is what you will see: Charon observing the arrivals So how’s that for watching. Thanks Sass (for following me!)
your darks are so verrrrry dark….smooth…very nice shooting.
Hello again, do I know you? ;-))Yes very dark and smooth that’s the aim (bit grainy, but that’s obscured.Thanks for coming back twice, cara :-)
wish I could take photos hereas I wish you could take some more photos along La Seine ……wonderful photofrom a fabulous soulful photographer
La Seine and The Yarra have so many things in common, and very similar ambiance at night. Thank you for your wonderful comment and I’m sure La Seine and I have a future appointment – impossible to imagine never seeing it again. Merci Madame, toujours.
Awesome low light image! I’m like Berns,wish I can handle low light like you Rhoufi. Just came back from holidays and all my night images were not presentable : (
Thank you Pat, but I’ve seen some of your “not presentable” images and I think they are quite fine. Sharp focus is not everything – composition and subject rank higher in my book :-)
stunning light and contrasts
Thank you Nikolay
