Re: Post some night photos!

Love the Tasman Bridge photo. I tend to use manual or shutter priority modes at night, and I suspect the full program modes would behave as you describe. They don't know that you want large areas of black to remain black, and so will try to render them gray.  If you've ever photographed the moon in a black sky you'll get a grayish (or just noisy) sky and a blown-out moon unless you compensate.
