    Night or day? : 60 second exposure

    This is a 60 second exposure, f2.8, Auto WB & VIVID (for a little more boost in the colour) at 10.59 pm (Exif says 11.59 because it was still set to summer time) on my Olympus E30 with a nearly full moon on a lovely clear night (except for the smoke in the area). Notice the street light in the centre.

    It's amazing what colours can be extracted from moonlight.

    Comments welcome.

    Yes, it certainly is amazing how much light is captured at 60s just from the moon. Well done

    Thankyou. I thought it was an interesting experiment to try. Focusing (MF) was a little hit & miss, but it seemed to work out OK. I think there might be a little light spill from the kitchen light on the left too (I forgot to turn it off).

    Thanks for the compliment, but they will have to stay still the whole time or I will get that lovely ghostly blur.

    Cheers.
