Fabulous, Michael. Have been to this bridge (as my sister lives in Bristol!), but never even considered visiting it at night (not that I have a clue about night-time photography). This is just exquisite and SO exceptional!

Really love this Mick!Have you changed to Nikon now?
MicktheGreek PRO+
MicktheGreek October 29, 2018
Thanks Ana! No, I haven't changed... I am largely using the Canon 5D Mark IV (which is a great camera), but I had to add Nikon to the collection, because of their better dynamic range. The RAW file of this photo was pushed to the limit, as the image was intentionally underexposed. You notice that the exposure was only 3 seconds, which sounds too short for an almost pitch black scene. That was to preserve the highlights on the bridge and avoid hot spots. The camera I used is ISO-invariant, which gives you the extra latitude when pushing brightness in post-processing without adding extra noise. That's why I took the shot at ISO 100 (lowest front-end read noise of the camera) and pushed the RAW files afterwards. If I had used the same settings with my Canon 5D Mark IV, I would still get a good photo but at a price of added noise. If I had used my 6D Mark II, the noise in the shadows would have been right in my face. With most Canon cameras, the "Expose to the Right" (ETTR) principle applies in spades. Sony and Nikon allow you a bit more room when it comes to underexposing (accidentally or not) and recovering the image in post processing. I could write hours about noise and dynamic range, as I have experimented a lot on them myself, but it would get you bore out of your skull. I am hoping to get the time to write the white paper on the subject, but I just can't find it. If I do, I will email it to you.
