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?

Ooo, I like this very, very much, Will! There goes my GRD2 interest raising its head again.

This is a very cool picture. How long was that timer set for, Will?

Thanks

It was f2.4, iso80, 60s exposure.
Here is the as shot image and it really was almost that dark to the eye. The glow in the sky is the street lights from London in the distance.

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.

ISO 1600, f/2.0, 6 second exposure.

5 second exposure.

Thanks will and streetshooter.

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.

Hi Will,
Great shots and I love your technique and lawn.
Found few things to decor my lawn also. Thanks for sharing with everyone.
