Norwegian latitudes doesn't make things better either. In December, sundown is at four pm. here in Oslo, making an evening stroll a Deed in Darkness all together.
But as clichees go, a man's got to do what a man's got to do. In my case, there's more of me to do more after a good share of Christmas food. So gloom aside, this body needs to burn calories like hellfire.
Weather conditions didn't exactly invite to photography that night, but I brought the K10D nonetheless. But no bananas this time (grin). I was unsure whether the lamp-posts provided enough light for a hand-held exposure, but I wanted to give it a try. Hopefully the shot below convey some of the mood that night.
Gear: Pentax K10D with DA*16-50/2.8.
Exposure: 1/8s, f/2.8 at ISO 1600.
Shake reduction is a Good Thing.
This is also my first attempt at applying matting in Photoshop. I guess I'll have to experiment a little before finding something I really like.
