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)

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.
