I did this with a Fuji S9100, which is not as good in low light as the S6000:

1. I took a picture of the downtown area in Seattle in automatic mode. It was about 40 minutes before sunset, so the sky turned out quite light. Clear, but not impressive.

2. I took a mental note of the shutter speed and aperture readings, and then put the camera into manual mode. I started out with the same settings as in automatic, then increased the shutter speed. So I went from 1/100 to 1/150 to 1/200 (I cannot remember the exact shutter speeds, but, anyway, I took about 10shots with increasing shutter speeds). Then I played with aperture settings, too. What had been mainly a very pale blue turned into a darker blue, then a purple when red edges. This all kind of happened by accident, but the pictures because much more interesting color-wise and more beautiful, I think.

Anyway, check it out. What the camera produced at those faster shutter speeds wasn't what the naked eye saw, but it looked more attractive to me.

It turned out nice Robbo, i miss Seattle as i grew up in Marysville Wash,
