These photos are a little different. They were all taken after the the sun had set on a moonless night with exposures between 15 and 60 seconds long. The only light is from the glow coming off Waterloo in the distance reflected off the snow.
One effect of using only distant city light for illumination is that you get a very narrow dynamic range. If you then expand that dynamic range in post-processing, you get some interesting effects.
I took these shots after dark one evening in January. Exposure times were between 8 and 10 minutes.
It was late afternoon on a sunny winter day at the Mill Race Weir near St Jacobs. My objective was to experiment with shooting into the sun in an environment that was already very bright.
