Car and pet wash at night

EXIF – Aperture priority / 44mm / F5.6 / 1/25 s / ISO 400 / -2.67 EV

So here’s my first successful (I think) attempt at night photography with my new Canon T2i. This is a local self-serve car wash near my house. Co-incidentally, this used to be a gas station called Jack’s Sunoco a long time ago and it was home to my very first job (not including summer work with my Dad, a contractor). I’ve been meaning to photograph this place for some time now. I’ve got a couple of other shots I’ll post down the road. Hope you like it.

    LOL, thanks Bob and Lynn. On close inspection there is indeed some noise in the shot, but with a tripod and lower ISO I’m sure it would have come out better. Also, my in-camera noise reduction is set at low. I should have set it higher for low light shooting.

    ah…i love the colors. and i love the large room you gave the sky (smile). thank you.

  5. I like the colors…beautiful. I noticed the ISO at 400. I think you can go higher with the T2i and still get acceptable noise levels. dSLR sensors are much bigger than the P&S you are used too.

      Thanks Scott. I agree. I should have taken a shot at 800 and 1600 in order to stop down the lens to like F8 for more depth of field. The shutter speed was fast enough. I had the IS on too, which adds a couple of stops.

    Fabulous foto Dave. I like your night gas station ones in general, but his one takes the cake (so to speak)
