I happened to have my FZ 20 with me while driving home the other night and thought to myself that I had never tried the night scenery mode before. So I set the mode and let the camera do the rest. F stop was around 6.5 and shutter speed ranged from 1.5 to 2 seconds. I rested the base of the camera on the steering wheel and started firing away. Driving speed was 25 mph / 40 kph and road was a tad bumpy. Here are the results. No pp just some cropping.

By first uploading them to an existing site and then putting the url's of the actual images in between [img] and [/img] tags, see e.g.

(scroll down to "Linking to images hosted on other website" ) for explanation :dude:

Cool :cool:..

If you wanted to post process these and you have software such as photoshop, set up a levels layer and use the shadow dropper to pick the darker areas.. It really makes the lights jump out and gets rid of the hazing such as in the first photo.. Next time, try 8 second exposures and turn off OIS...

40mph.. 8 seconds, f2.8, ISO 80.

Fun stuff.
