...nighttime Long exposure #1...

This is my second attempt at getting some long exposure night shots, at Lake Michigan, of the lighthouse in Michigan City, Indiana. My first attempt ended with every frame being WAY underexposed. With some tremendous guidance from Bob at notraces regarding long exposure night photography and Kyle at c-41 regarding general night photography, I came up with this image, and other images to follow in the next few days.

It's amazing, because all night for some reason I thought I was overexposing everything, but now I wish I had opened up a stop or 2.

The chicago skyline is usually visible between the two lights, but this night, no chicago.

Snapped on 1.8.05 with mamiya 645E at f8, 8 minutes, on fuji provia 100.
