I tried an experiment a while back taking a shot at 11.15pm when it was virtually dark to the eye. I put my GRD2 on a table in the garden on self timer.
After a few tries and some fairly severe pp this is what I got. Anyone else tried anything similar?
I have tried pushing my LX5 to the extreme, although I haven't achieved the same results as you have. The following photos were taken in the very early hours of the morning (2am-4am) when the sky was dark and black, not blue. It certainly wasn't as bright as it looks in the photos either.
Those photos were taken in the very early hours of the morning, trying very hard to entice my teenage kitten down from the neighbour's garage roof. But he's at the age where he's discovering the innate feline ability of being able to leap anywhere they damn well please. Plus, he's just made friends with the said neighbour's cat too. So they were both playing together until sunrise while I went back and caught a couple of hours sleep.
He doesn't know the meaning of the word 'curfew'. Sometimes the other cat comes to the back door and does this stuttering mewing sound calling for Atom. He runs out and is gone for a while. I'm happy he's got a friend to play with.
