Hanover at Night


Don’t forget to click on an image and then look at them in slideshow mode.

I have been thinking about making a series of pictures of Hanover at Night, and this morning I tried a few images.  I wanted to get a feel for what lens and settings to use for my micro 4/3 setup and see how the camera handled the white balance, etc.  For example, I have noticed that some of my other cameras didn’t handle red LED stop lights and different street lights accurately.

I liked the results so I am showing you a few of the images as examples and to see how they post.  The only adjustments that I have made to any of the pictures is slight cropping while leveling a few of them, some noise reduction in the ones where the ISO was 3200 or over, and some slight reduction of highlights if bright lights clipped some.  Other than those tweaks, the images were taken raw and reduced using LR CC.

All were taken at f/2.8 and a shutter speed of 1/20 sec with the Sigma 60 mm lens (efov 120 mm) and in auto ISO with max. set at 6400, and with auto WB.  Since the temperature was at freezing, I took most of the images through the car window.
