    Nocturnal amble

    Armed with the mighty DP1, he might be seen stalking in the streets of the city at night...

    Super B/W osman. sometimes only black and white will do to create lovely atmospheric images like these.

    What were your camera settings? Converted in SPP or ??? I like the street shots especially!

    Re: Nocturnal amble

    Thank you! As far as I can remember, the camera was set at ISO 800, program mode and -0.3 ev exposure; X3F raw converted to 16-bit TIFF in SPP, retouched in PS CS4 + Color EfexPro and converted to jpeg.

    Actually, I use the aperture mode more often, Derek, but the difficulty in night shooting forced me to switch to the easier mode.

    Re: Nocturnal amble

    I include this shot purely for technical reasons. DP1 understandably has poor high-ISO performance. This was not particularly a problem in the monochrome shots, but color noise is more difficult to swallow. I think longer exposure time may compensate for some of this mishap.

    yes see what you mean, agree a longer exposure should do the job.

    Re: Nocturnal amble

    But we must not overlook the fact that shooting at longer exposures hand-held is for the young and mighty!

    Hi Osman,

    I love those B/W shots. Did you convert with SPP 4/4.1, or with 3.5? The reason I ask is that (in general) 3.5 gives you more 'grain' (luminescence noise).

    Very well done...

    Jim

    Thank you Jim, I converted with SPP4, but without noise suppression.
