Norrel on August 9, 2009

I've seen this picture before, or at least a picture taken at the same place, at the same time of night...

Hence the title Norrel. I hope you're well.

This is nice, Spence, very nice indeed. You were a bit lower on the hill, and that let you get a nice bit of downtown in there, too. Your headlights are nice and white, I like that. How long did you expose this for? It says 60 in the EXIF info, but that doesn't make much sense to me.

Thanks N1W. Being lower on the hill also made the power lines get in the way. I did expose this for 60 seconds because there wasn't much traffic headed toward the city this late, so I had it on as long as I was able to get as much of the red lights as possible.

That's one of the things that I don't like about my camera, it only lets me shoot up to 30 seconds. I could use the B setting, but then I'd have to hold the shutter open, and that would introduce camera shake. No winning, I guess. You did well, as you got nice sharp light lines in all the directions.

Hey N1W, check this out. I ordered one recently (for a Canon DSLR), but have yet to try it out.

Thanks, Spence. It seems that it doesn't work on my D60. It think that that's because the 60 is on the lower end of their pricing spectrum, so they don't market to it very hard.
