Closing time, Smithfield
Testing my new toy, I shot these pictures after the pubs' closing time (11pm) Friday night:
The Bishop's Finger, near Smithfield Market
The Smithfield meat market (closed on weekends)
Congratulations with the new camera. :-) Hopefully I'll have one before the end of the year :-)
Anders -- Awesome examples of the 10D's low-light capabilities. Did you use a tripod?
It would be great to know if these are hand-held or tripod shots. If hand-held, are they off-the-cuff or carefully set?
Also, have you dialed down the resolution for the Web, or shrunk the images in Photoshop? It would be interesting to see a full-resolution detail excerpt as well.
Thanks for your comments, Steve and Mark;
these shots were shot hand-held (leaning on a car for one and on a parking meter for the other), both shots unplanned / not at all carefully set...
Resolution: VERY cut back for web-use. I shoot in 6.3 Megapixel JPEG (2+ meg per photo) I will post loads more photos in near future - will include some full-resolution samples for comparisons...
I'm a Canon Ixus 400 user. I was wondering how you manage distant night shots using an ixus? I was doing some shoots at night and the images turned out to be really dark.
Hoping you can provide some advice.
Congratulations on the photo of my pub (the Bishops Finger) I always feel it looks at its best late at night but have a problem capturing it on my canon a40 camera (always comes out dark!. well done on this site. Paul
