Pretty much am after full night, with lighting by moon or artificial. Sorry, I know this
theme is more difficult.

That's cool, I was just wondering due to G.T.'s photo from the bridge. I'll go ahead and post the one I have that I was curious about as I really liked the way the lights on the pier shifted color in the reflection off the ocean's surface, but the sky is just starting to light up prior to sunrise. If it doesn't qualify, let me know so I can choose a replacement.

One Light Out

John, this is perfectly acceptable, I don't see the sun anywhere, and nicely done I
might add! Great light reflections on the water...

My film is at the developer and I am assured it will be back with more than a week to spare.
Looking forward to your entries, good luck!

Here's another that I dug out of the files. Hadn't looked at these in awhile and was happy to find a night shot.

Lifeguard Optional

My third entry. If I get out with my Olympus for some night shots between now and the close I may replace any of these, which is why I posted them as separate entries.

Well, this has been fun .

Had to figure out everything. I never did this kind of shooting with the P&S. Even when I made the possibility for manual control a selection point on choosing the camera, I never had to go for Manual yet. Aperture priority, yes.
Had to find the timer as well :ugh: I did try out the 'Night scene' setting too.


Passage







By the way, the inscription on the wall reads: Saint Cornelius protects the animals. Quite ahead of his time, this fellow.


Bandstand







Lonely bench







Even though I didn't use really high ISO, except for the first one I couldn't resist the B&W conversion anyway .


Camera is Panasonic FX500

Nice work!
I feel this contest will be, once again, hi-skilled (I'm not sure the term is correct, though).

John, G. T, and Bart, thanks for your entries. This is going to be a tough one to
judge.

Let's hope we get some more entries.
Still some two weeks to go.

Bart, credits go where credits due. These are nice photographs.
We are just half way, I still have two pictures to send if I want to do so (I would have to select these 2 before), I guess there will be a load of nice night pics to come.

Here we are... Mid-term. Time for me to post my last two attempts.


Trouville port entrance

And after a slight hesitation between a night ride took from the driver's seat and Concorde late at night...
You won the driver's seat (Sniff & the Tears ).

night ride
That was at the beginning of this month, in Paris. The night was pretty warm, and I opened the sunroof a bit. I'm driving on the Boulevard de Strasbourg. At the end of the boulevard, rises the Gare de l'Est.
