Last night was crisp air and clear skies, so I thought I'd see
what the FZ20 could do with a night shot. I am reasonably
pleased with the result, but since I'm a beginner with the
camera, I'd like some feedback from all you experts out there...
the relevant exif:
Exposure time: 3.20 seconds
f number: 3.7
Exposure program: Manual
ISO speed rating: 100
Exposure mode: Manual exposure
Exposure bias: 0.0 stops
White balance: Auto white balance
Gain control: None
I also did a little PP in the GIMP:
de-noising, adjusted levels, bumped up the saturation a bit,
and cropped and resized. The resizing was by a factor of 4
for posting here; there is nice detail on the full size image.
I used ISO 100 because of all the noise about noise on this forum;
a few test shots at ISO 200 and faster shutter speed confirmed this.
