    Photos 3 and 5!!!
    Yes, I sure like those best.
    If only 3 were totally symmetric!
    That would give even more on an impression of a toy-caleidoscope, you know what I mean?
    And 5 would need to be rotated by 1 degree CW... good choice of aperture. How much?

    i used f/8 @ approx 10 seconds for most of these shots. This was mostly an experimental walkaround to figure out different effects that different camera settings achieve.

    One thing i realised is that with a smaller appeture, the lights have a softer feel than with a large appeture.

    This picture was taken at f/8 at 10 seconds and look at the lights. I set my exposure time for mid-range on my light meter.

    This picture was taken at f/3.2 for 1/2 second, again setting my light meter for mid-range. And the lights have no flairs on them.

    This is how Im learning what different settings do on the camera. Was kinda fun :) Thanks for the comments guys.

    Ooo, I didn't know that about the aperture-light relationship...though I guess it makes sense. You learn something new everyday!

    Where's the facility at, btw? Halifax?

    I never knew that about the lights either, its pretty kool what you can learn about photography just by experimenting

    Cheers

    Edit : how do you like your s5200? I have the same camera :)

    Hehe I like it. It does the trick, and for a camera in its price range, it's pretty much the best without delving into full-out DSLR's. I love it. Wish it had a larger aperture range though...
