Is the histogram for night shots any different than day shots? What I am trying to figure out is would it need to be analyzed differently because it is for the night shot?
It certainly is: http://www.cambridgeincolour.com/tut...istograms1.htm

-> It looks very much like any 'low-key" histogram in that everything is tilted to the left - Take note on the section toward the botton where:
"The following set of images would have resulted if I had used my camera's auto exposure setting. Note how the average pixel count is brought closer to the midtones."
