    Default City centre in technicolour

    Hi folks

    I took these pics a few weeks ago on one particularly colourful evening when I left work just after sunset, I happened to have my camera with me so I nipped up to the top floor of the new Q-Park and took a few shots. Hope you like!

    All of them were on Auto cos my fingers were freezing! It was just before we had those few days of snow, and there was a small patch up on the top floor of the carpark which had been in the shade all day and so hadn't melted. I was busy fiddling with my camera when I slipped and nearly threw it to the ground. I really need a tripod too, all these were taken resting my camera on the very few flat edges of the steelwork! I've got some more night-time pictures buried away somewhere.

    Anyway, my picture viewer tells me...

    1st picture - shutter 1 sec, aperture 3.2

    2nd - 0.4 secs, 2.6 aperture

    3rd - 0.6 secs, 2.6 aperture

    4th - 1 sec, 3.5 aperture

    5th - 0.8 secs, 2.6 aperture

    6th - 1 sec, 2.6 aperture

    7th - 1 sec, 5.0 aperture (would have liked to play around with this one)

    8th - 0.8 secs, 2.6 aperture (this one too, to get some streaky headlights!)

    ISO was "auto" on all of them, doesn't tell me what speed it ended up with.

    The Liver Building and Queen Square ones are my favourites too. Here's some more, from last November. These were from the warmth of my office so I fiddled about more with the controls on these:


    shutter=15 sec, aperture=8.0


    shutter=6 sec, aperture=8.0


    shutter=8 sec, aperture=8.0


    shutter=6 sec, aperture=8.0


    shutter=10 sec, aperture=8.0


    shutter=15 sec, aperture=8.0

    It's something I keep threatening to get! Up til then it's a case of finding something stable to put my camera on. The ones from in my office were taken with my camera sat on a phone book, a yellow pages and an argos catalogue to get the height above the window sill, not to mention holding the window wide open on a freezing cold evening while I faffed about! The things we do for a couple of pictures...

    I still get the odd fuzzy images from my tripod at night when I press the camera button too hard.

    Yep that's what I do. If I can't find somewhere to rest it, I'll put it on continuous shoot and try and hold it as still as I can for a few shots (holding it against my body helps). I usually get at least 1 decent one that way.

    secret is to use the self timer that way, no camera wobble
