Settings used were ISO 100, F/7.1 and I was playing with the white balance on some of them. None of the shots were colour altered in Photoshop, its amazing the colours you can naturally get from long exposures.
I didnt use a flash on any apart for the tomb where I ran around the back of building and fired the flash a couple of times.
Otherwise on some of the shots I was using an LED torch to light up some of the areas.


4-5 min exposures how long was process time b4 you could veiw on lcd bout the same time or quicker

you mean how long it takes to appear on the LCD of the camera after I had released the shutter release?

A couple of seconds? umm what difference would that make? I thought that would be dependant on how fast the CF Card was that was used, nothing to do with the taking of the photo

My camera takes just as long to process the image to LCD as the length of exposure.

EG, 20 sec exposure, 20 seconds for camera to "develop" pic to LCD screen, so it takes say 2 minutes to see a pic I took for a 1 minute exposure (1 minute exposure + 1 minute proccessing)

The first pic in the slide, I am guessing that i a green laser pointer? (How many mW?)

You must have noise reduction on in the camera, it is in one of the function settings. Noise reduction takes a fake black 'exposure' that lasts as long as your exposure in an effort to reduce long exposure "noise" - for instance, bad pixels, grain etc etc. I have it turned off myslef as I cannot be bothered waiting for it, and I do not mind noise.

Yeah I have. I will turn it off next time I will do a long exposure and see the difference. Funny, I still think of noise reduction as the extra feature "Dolby Noise Reduction" that were on mid and upper range cassette decks from the 70's and 80's. (OK, I am showing my age now :( )

That one is straight out of a Craig Potten (sp?) calendar Phil!

Nice long exposures VERT - very cool effects with the flashes in the background etc. Very cunning you are...
