    Here are a few shots from my recent night time wanderings. All light was from available sources. All were hand held if you could not tell.

    Not my thing. I guess the high ISO just makes everything too grainy. not much you can do about that though. Maybe use a tripod and loooong exposures.

    I really like no. 1. I think the grain adds to a sort of eerie effect.

    The grain doesn't really bother me, but the light is too harsh.
    I do like the #2, though.

    Since I dont have a flash, I had to try to work with the available lighting, which was usually directional hence the harsh shaddows. Since the images were still dark, I tried to focus on using the shadows and highlights more as abstract compositional items. While they are still obviously flowers, I feel that some of the lighting helps to produce a stronger image compositionally with fewer distractions.
