I usually get to bed around 2:00am but since I'm off this weekend I'm up even later. Get about 5-6 hours sleep a night...Much more than that the old back hurts too much....

Good Morning Dawg - I hope the gobblins did not get you last night. In looking at the image again this morning, there are all sorts of things in there. It is one really fine shot that you should be proud of.

I have to thank you for your tips. After I posted last night, I started moving away from the Av, Tv settings on to the manual. This is a good learning experience in terms of the K100's capabilities. Now after a year, I am probably - maybe a third of the way through the arcane functions of the unit.

If I remember correctly, the K10 has an remote function that allows a laptop to hook up to it and control everything. That would be perfect for something like this..... My Canon P&S has the feature and its quite remarkable.

Thanks again,

A photo worth staying awake for, Ed.

Nice to know that you are a considerate photographer :-)

I can but agree with all the above comments and say "Very nice indeed!".

I do not know about the lap top but will look into it...I don't own a laptop but do use one every night at work trouble shooting Programable Logic Controllers. I work on Automated assembly equipment and they are controlled by PLC's...The bad thing is they are not standardised and I have probably 8 different brands and 4-5 different models of each brand. Makes life interesting to say the least..LOL I come from the world of the Box camera...No controls for focus or anything else for that matter, which makes you do your work with the composition more...And from the world of the K1000 Pentax which is all manual...There is an exposure needle that shows up in the viewfinder but no Auto controls on the exposure and no auto focus...I used these for over 35 years and have continued using mainly manual settings as I feel more comfortable there. I also do not like a camera telling me what is the right exposure...I'm right more often than It is it seems. The last may be a delusion on my part but that is how it feels to me. Two things are most important when doing night time low light photography...Patience and Persistance...If each shot must be a perfectly focused and exposed photograph then don't get into it...They won't be perfectly done...If you must have perfection right from the camera with no PP then don't get into it as PP will bring out the mood of the shot better and more consistantly than getting it right in-camera. That is just the nature of the beast and you must get used to it.

Again I say Patience and Persistance...........
