    Well another holiday thread from me - I just noticed that I spent most of the time shooting in the dark (and I have not even got to the cave shots)

    Anyway here are my attempts at very late night river photos - definatly no problems with too much light!

    All shots taken with:
    Cannon ESO 400D
    Canon 70-200mm f2.8 IS
    Tripod 055XPROB + 322RC2

    [​IMG]
    f2.6, ISO 100, 1.6sec, flash fired, manual mode.

    I think this is my favourite shot from the day.

    I stuck at f2.8 at the time as it was very dark and I wanted light into the lens (that and I had an addiction to f2.8 that week!). In retrospect I would have prefered a smaller aperture, longer shutter speeds and a larger ISO -- note that the blur in the shots is also due to the fact I was manually focusing and it was rather tricky to get it right in the dark!

    Comments, advice and crits welcome - thanks

    Not too bad, like always theres lots of room for improvement, the last two are much better than the first two, the second one really doesn't have much in focus, the others could benefit from better cropping, they all seem a bit toward the blue side colorwise as well (don't feel bad its hard to get right under those conditions) perhaps a warming filter could help

    I think for these I see the shots as being more to the blue - at the time there was no light - just the end of twilight - so I got a good dark and bluey feeling from the falls. I would really like to get back there in proper light and get them though definatly!
