Seeing that October has already started in some parts of the world, it's probably time to start a new non-av pic thread. The other thread had got too long anyway.

Looking forward to seeing all your new pics folks, so in the meantime I'll start the ball rolling:

I LOVE that last one!

My girlfriend roped me in to take photos at her law school's casino night last weekend. Mostly photos of people, but got some others as well:

Interesting that you say that. The shot is exactly what I intended, but for some reason it doesn't quite work for me. I've been trying to figure out why, and haven't really come up with anything.

Hmmmm . . . . different strokes for different folks, I suppose. I'm no expert, but to me it has an interesting mix of shapes and colours. It's also clean and simple, with the objects perfectly balanced in an asymmetric way. I see it as a well-composed still-life.

I just got back from a trip to Walt Disney World and had some amazing Florida skies at sunset. This is normally my go-to location at Epcot for sunset and it did not disappoint.

Here are a few I shot last night (October 12) at Greenfield Village in Dearborn, Michigan.

Here is a few I snapped on Belle Isle, in Detroit, Michigan on the first day of fall and the weather sure felt like it. This was on the north tip of the island looking into Lake St. Clair.

I took these this past August in St. Louis, Missouri at the Botanical Garden, during the Chinese Lantern Festival.

If anyone has any ideas on how to make the nighttime photos better, I'm all ears. I set the ISO higher on the camera on account of the motion, but I think that might have made the image grainier.

I love this close-up: the contrast of the green and orange on the beige leaf with the drops. Great effect!

I don't know what kind of camera you have, or what sorts of adjustments you have available to you. You are correct, the ISO noise (the graininess) comes from the fact that you have set your ISO very high. The trick to clear night photography is to reduce your ISO to more normal levels and then open up your aperture. If you want to eliminate the shakiness, steady the camera the best you can and make sure your shutter speed is greater than 1/60th of a second- that's the speed your shutter automatically fires if you use your flash. So with the aperture fully opened, adjust the ISO to get the shutter speed to 1/60th. That will give you the least possible grain with a manageable shutter speed to eliminate the shakes. Of course, a tripod would enable you to take long exposures - even bulb exposures.

Now if you don't want to have the light streaks, then you'll have to do a fully manual shot, or at least shutter-priority at 1/500th or better. That brings in lots and lots of variables, many of which a few of us could go on and on and on about....

Hope this helps.

I've put it here because it is not really an a.net quality shot. But it was really cool that we flew right over it and that I recognized it to be the airfield before it was out of sight!
