I reckon you have done well with these - considering the conditions, time of day (night) . . . . maybe some +EV (1 or 2) on X100 might have made it easier.

Yes, you're probably right. I had some difficulties fiddeling with the controls at -18C

Hand holding at that shutter speed is always difficult esp. in the cold.

It is - I tried using my ski pole to stabilize it a bit but a tripod or even monopod would have been a lot useful.

I find technically perfect shots plain boring, I like yours as I get a sense / feeling from your images and they say something.


Thank you for your comments!
