still night


Nikon D70 @ 10mm, 20 secs, f/4.8, ISO 200

Looking back on this shot, it amazes me that this was a 20 second exposure - it must have been a very still night! I took this one down at St. Cuthberts, where most of my other graveyard shots have been taken. I was quite limited to the composition here as I had to wedge my camera in between the railings above me. Still, there's something about this one that appeals to me.

I've been crazy busy recently so am delighted that I've got Friday and Monday off... a woo hoo!!! Will definitely be getting some photography in and hopefully that will inspire me to get back to my daily updates.

Got a sweet shot of my bro coming up soon, so hang tight :)

Not the best from you in personal opinion - yes it is an amazing shot but it just feels a bit artificila I can't seem to explain why - it's too perfect I guess :) but if I could I would definately use it as a wallpaper and I pick my wallpapers very critically ;)

This one's lacking the atmosphere that most of your graveyard shots have. Perhaps because it's quite well and evenly lit, there's no spooky feel to it. That's not a bad thing in itself, but I prefer some of your others.

Have fun at the weekend!

Hey, John. I have to concur with those above. I think there's a lack of focus here on where to look. I'm glad you really like it 'cause we do shoot for ourselves first. Kind regards, Brent

Looks like it's right out of Harry Potter! Neat shot.

Definitely an appealing shot. It's different to most other graveyard shots I've seen. Brilliant! :)

Azhar: Perfection isn't always good I guess ;) I know what you mean though - the balance between the artificial and ambient light (and the lack of harsh shadows) means that it doesn't have the atmosphere a lot of graveyard shots tend to have.

Everyone: Thanks for the comments guys :)
