    Another one from my M.Zuiko 9-18mm zoom. I have actually zoomed in here to 10mm !!!! A 13 second exposure at f/9 and ISO200.

    You have nailed the exposure here Peter. An iconic image worthy of a brochure.

    Peter,
    A question. I'll probably show my age here but I'm curious.
    In the old daze, there was a thing called film. With this acetate coated material, it had reciprocity. Do you find any reciprocity effect with your digital camera and if so, what percentage?
    An oldie.....

    Not really, metering just becomes unreliable which I guess you could say is similar but more to do with the lack of light. An exposure like the one above is fine and plenty bright eough. You just need to shoot at -1EV to -1.7V to compensate for the fact the the meter wants to include the dark bits but you need to expose towards the brighter bits. That's the subject matter, not the lenght of exposure.

    Stunning! I took some pictures of this great bridge a few years ago with my 3MP Canon D30. This picture really puts mine to shame. Makes me want to go back with my Pen. :)

    Stunning is right! Another "wow" photo. You really have both the eye and the abilities needed for these night photos, as well as your long exposure coastal shots. Top notch!
