Thanks to Harris' invitation, I've decided to make a post or two over here. This is a shot from the Amtrak Surf Station near Lompoc, CA taken about a week back, immediately after sunset. I stalked around this station as it appeared almost as "a port in a storm" with the lights of the station standing out against the blue and black sky. I finally knelt (in a very uncomfortable pose) and took this shot. Nikon D100, 12-24mm DX (12mm), ISO400, 1/5 s, f/4, -1.7ev, slightly cropped, processed in NC Here's hoping that links work the same here as "that other forum". Always shoot. John P.
