Here's our favorite place for ice cream when we travel to St. Pete Beach, Florida.

Good shot of the neon sign though it is a tad bit overexposed. The color is washed out in the neon tubes. A good trick for shooting neon at night is to get as close to the sign as you can, spot meter on the glowing tube, lock the exposure with the exposure lock button, and then back up to where you want to shot the picture and shoot with the locked exposure setting.

Not sure how Cal knows those aren't the intended colors of the neon tubes.

On any event nice shot.

You may be right, Selvin and if that's the case, ignore what I said!

Whether it's true or not for this shot, it's helpful advice for me! :-)

Thanks for the info. That pic was taken with my old point and shoot, so I didn't have much control over anything!!
