Some night shots ...

After looking at some night shots from the blog of my friend Novalpha, i decided to try, so here are the results.

The fountain in Place Wilson:
Place Wilson - IMGP9517

Portion of Rue D'Alsace Lorraine, behind the city hall:
Rue D'Alsace Lorraine - IMGP9504

Place du Capitole, detail of the city hall:
Le Capitole - IMGP9479

All shot with a Pentax-A 50 f/1.7 at 1/4 sec. without tripod/monopod (believe it or not) and shake reduction on (thanks Pentax).

More to come ...

Nice shots. My first reaction had been to advise you to take longer pictures, but when I read that you are not using any tripod/monopod, I must admit that this is really great great job. Tanks Pentax for Shake Reduction thoug... Don't have it on my Canon, it seems to be really effecient.

Hi, thanks, but most of the merit goes to the rain, for the light reflections, and, really, to Pentax, for their shake reduction system.

Thanks, the A 50/1.7 is really superb even today, 25 years after his birth ... If only Pentax made one with a metal barrel ...

Thanks for commenting.
