Silver 2.2 SE Night Shots...

Bin day tomorrow, the missus reminded me that I hadn't yet taken the wheelie bin out to the curb.

Just as I came out through the garden gate, I saw how perfectly the street lamp was shining off my new civic to give a pretty arty effect. Ran inside and got my "good" camera, back outside.... battery dead!! DOH!! Back inside, charge battery for 10 minutes, back outside to take the shots before the camera died again.

A bit of cropping and exposure fiddling later....

1. from a distance, zoomed to about 6 x Optical to take it. Hence the slight blur/noise around the headlight area, but still an unmistakeable shape.


2. closer now, no need for much zoom, maybe 1.5/2 x Optical, but that was just to frame the shot really. The auto ISO setting didn't really do too well, there's still a bit of noise on the far top lines of the bonnet.


3. My fave shot of the night: the hi-res version of this pic is lush (photobucket reduces resolution), I love how the raindrops are so sharp.

I'll try that tonight, but the initial effect from the streetlights was what I was trying to capture.

My DRL strips are in the post so no doubt there'll be more to come.
