Some More Attempts at Long Exposures

The Tram, Before and After

I took this picture in Fujicolour of a tram at night.  It’s a handheld shot, completely unzoomed to avoid as much shake as possible.

Next, I greyscaled it and cropped it to get rid of the light on the left and the scaffolding on the right.

Then I messed about with the levels to try and get a bit of glow from the tram lights compared to the street and to hide a bit of grain.

The Moon

I have never managed to get a really good picture of the moon.  It’s always to shiny a disc in a black background.  This is probably my best one where the moon is too washed out and you can make something of the landscape out and it’s even got a few birds in the shot.

I came across this article which shows I’m not the only one who has problems.  In future I’m going to take the advice and not go for the full moon but try to catch it at another time of the month and aim for the terminator.

This is probably a better shot of the moon itself but the sky is grained like nobody’s business:

Gloom

There’s been too many pictures of people doing thing on this blog recently.  A return to badly exposed gloom is needed.
