Moonlight Walk, Lincoln

New venture. Was asked to help taking pictures for a local hospice 'do'. St Barnabas were having a 'Moonlight Walk' along a circular route around Lincoln.
Time was 10pm to midnight (or thereabouts) - several from our camera club were 'volunteered'.
So I got sorted. First problem was my FL36 flash had the locking ring break when I fitted it to the camera, that gave me the choice of the kit flash or go without.
As I had included my old OM Zuiko 50mm f1.8 in my bag ( I was going to use the 12-50 on my EM1/1 ) I decided to go with 'no flash' and see what happened.
Not being sure about noise I used 400asa, f2 and 1/20 ~ 1/50th second. All turned out pretty dark and needed +3 stops in photoshop.
Here is a selection -
Starting on Lindum Hill - street lights(led) and traffic ...









... then in town, on the High Street ...



... and lastly, on Brayford Bridge, on the way back uphill to the start ...

'tail end charlie' ...



There you have it. Comments and suggestions welcomed.

Should I have opted to go to 800+asa ? iAuto seemed to work and produce 'lighter' images, but not sure on that route.

They don’t look bad given the limitations you had.

Re: Moonlight Walk, Lincoln

Thanks, Internaut. Obviously poor contrast and fuzziness after treating to +3 stops in Photoshop.
Next I will have to go down town in the dark and try differing iso's (400 > 1600 perhaps) then look at tradeoffs re graininess.
