Edinburgh at night

This was my first attempt at night photography using my old Fuji S7000 camera and a tripod, and I was very impressed indeed with the results. These photos really brought home to me how superior digital cameras are to traditional film cameras: obtaining satisfactory results in darkness with a non-digital camera would require guesswork, a very long exposure and a great deal of luck, whereas the digital camera produced excellent images like those below almost every time.

Lawnmarket looking towards Castlehill in Edinburgh's Old Town, 17th November, 2008. Note the annoying schemie scumbags on the left who insisted on standing in the street, shouting abuse and wiggling their arses at me when they saw me with the camera.
