I think these are pretty. All shot manually with Oly 17/2.8 @f5.0, 50 second exposure and ISO 200 on an E-P1. My baby Benro tripod seemed to do pretty good, even in near gale force winds.



What I like about these shots is the maintenance of a natural ambience. Sometimes, the extra drama added in PP is beautiful and arresting but makes the image more a product of a sci-fi movie production.

Yes, it also shows what you can produce using any camera and lens - tho' perhaps the light and compact gear made it all the more possible.



Thanks Ray! Yes, I did almost no PP, only a minor white balance adjustment to tone down the street lamp amber and a minor brightness. Didn't even touch NR. The noise looked pretty tight and pleasingly grainy to me.
