I don't shoot this camera much at all and decided to get out and use it more in order to get better with it ( I shoot manual cameras mostly). So here is an attempt. It was a 30 sec exposure 50 minutes after sunset on an overcast day.

Thanks. But it was not without a lot of work in the image editor. Not being proficient in the editor, it took a while to get the pink cast out of the lights shinning on the building, the heavy orange cast out of the lighthouse light and the green cast out of the ferry lights. That is about as good as I am at it.
