    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:

    wish I could take photos here
    as I wish you could take some more photos along La Seine ……
    wonderful photo
    from 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 :-)
