I've been working on a series of shots of New York's Central Park, all taken at dusk or later. I managed to get some good weather last night and went there with the new gear. Not bad for the first try...

(All shot on a GH1 with the 14-140 lens...the lens significantly outperformed my expectations)

Comments and criticism welcome. I've got a whole series of these, but most of them were shot in my Canon days... http://www.flickr.com/photos/adamtrilling/sets/72157605959323947/

Thanks all!

Herman - I was shooting on a Manfrotto 055CX3 tripod with a PhotoClam PC-44NS head. ISO 100, manual exposure f/8 15 seconds, two-second timer, OIS disabled, auto white balance, single autofocus.

The camera figured out most of the shot on its own. It metered about one stop overexposed, which wasn't really wrong but would have blown out the lights a lot more than I like. It got the white balance almost exactly...that's the closest I've seen a large-sensor camera get the white balance for a night shot.

BBW - My soon-to-be-wife always makes fun of me for saying how beautiful the light is at night. We'll be walking somewhere and I'll be like, the light is really nice tonight, and she'll be like, um, it's dark... That fort is Belvedere Castle...just south of the Great Lawn in Central Park.
