Re: E30 and night time photos

There are some shots in my gallery taken with this exact combination of camera and lens. I bracketed all the shots as described in the earlier post, but I found the best exposure for the shots with the reflections in the water were as metered by the camera (albeit with very burnt out highlights), but for the shot of the wheel where I wanted the lights to be exposed correctly the best shot was two stops underexposed. Noise reduction was set to auto so it cut in automatically on the long exposures, and white balance was set to auto. Just experiment with different setting and see which you like best. Hope this helps.
