Before retiring last thing at night I sometimes open the bathroom window and drink in the night air, enjoying the peace and quiet. A few nights ago, there was a nice mist hanging over the scene and I decided to finish off a roll of Silvermax in my OM2 by sitting the camera on some towels on the window ledge and making a couple of exposures.
The exposure for this one must have been around a minute or so - I just put the camera on auto, added a bit of exposure compensation and fired away using the self timer. The thing that attracted me to the shot was the street lights on the leaves just to the right of the house on the left hand side of the frame. They had an ethereal look about them.
When it came to scanning the neg, however, my scanner was acting up so I had to use a 28-105 macro zoom on the D700 to "digitise" it. The sepia tint was added to the highlights in Adobe Lightroom. It's not the sharpest photograph I've ever taken but, all things considered, it's not too bad.
