    Great post, Geoff. I've been having fun after sunset too, I should have something for the astrophotography thread soon. Have you ever tried to get stars in your dusk shots? It's amazing you handheld that. Did you have a post/IS to lean on?

    That one, and the slightly more blurry one I took before it, were totally hand held. After that I started using a telegraph pole to lean up against. I deleted several and ended up with 4 I liked. I guess I slightly prefer this one to the others. As it got darker the lights looked redder somehow and PP doesn't seem to make it any better.
    Thanks for the comment. :
    BTW - this is another from the same set, Still prefer the first one though.

    Look at this sky - I heard the cry!
    But the surrounding scenery is not much cop out the back of our house
    - still - I had a stab at it - albeit with handheld awfully slow shutter speeds!!!
    Got to go for it though!!
    This one with the wide 17 - 70 hand held in the back garden...

    INFO
    Let me see (quickly opens the exif data) - at first I got a blurred shot - then the first one was bumped to
    ISO 400 and -0.7 to get 20th sec @60mm (90 equiv) - then hanging out the bathroom window I got a bit
    more daring - with a focal lenth of 80 (120mm equiv) I risked 1/3rd sec - no - nothing to lean against!!
    so it was a matter of hold steady - also it was before the bottle of wine I just polished off tonight!!!
    I did take an even more zoomed in shot - but it doesn't look any more interesting - so I shan't bother posting...
    All in all considering it's not a fantastic view in the first place - I was quite pleased -

    noaw where is that necsht bottle....

    Am utterly envious of my brother's view from his flat
