Long exposure with the LX
Lens: Varied Camera: Pentax LX Photo Location: Launceston

Here's some from my first attempt at long exposures with the LX's OTF metering. All with Ilford FP4+ 125, developed at home.

The first and the last are very successful (especially the last), but the middle two seem to be overly blurry. Although it looks like just motion blur, it's definitely not something we want.

Yes, well done with the last one - close to perfect.
Fine B&W results.

Very nice!

Did you dial in some EV compensation? I've used the LX once at night (also FP4+ but shot at ISO 50) and the resulting images looked as if they were shot under near-daylight.

No EV compensation this time. After this attempt I think I'd probably dial in +2EV compensation...
