I was tempted to use this one for this week's Photo Friday challenge – Speed – but I suspect I can come up with something noticeably better. I am quite pleased with this one though, not in terms of its quality as a photograph (it's not too great, to say the least), but because it's the first long exposure I've put up on chromasia. My old G5, at anything slower than a couple of seconds, produced images so noise-riddled they were unusable. This shot though was a 30 second exposure and there's barely any noise at all. I'm beginning to see why night photography is so fascinating.

All that said, I have a long way to go before I manage anything as good as this shot by Keith Kin Yan / Overshadowed.
