What about something specific about every car in the thread. Such as the driver's window must be half open?

Well in that case why don't we give guidance to the non-camera people? It's simple really, set the aperture to a higher number and that's it; and if your camera's not got an aperture priority mode then i would advise you to get a better camera or just use your phone instead. Hopefully that's good enough, so why can't we do it then? smile
I'd imagine a lot will be done with a Point & Shoot or a phone, and I don't think many will buy a new camera just to learn to fiddle around and try to work it. Have you ever tried to take a picture of some writing on paper from any distance? It's not just a case of aperture and working lighting, sometimes you just can't see it.

We've been absolutely fine without so far, and it's just a bit of fun, so if it 'ain't broke, don't fix. smile

Yes ,in background and with Birds custard too and a hand written date to prove it's

not an old pic from your archives.

I have failed miserably by going out too late [too dark] forgot to buy the custard too.

What a fool.Maybe try again tomorrow if no one else moves this on.

I did take 2 pics but they are rubbishrolleyes

I live in Dorset, it is a long way to anything resembling city lights.

Would small provincial town lights be good enough?

It's a tricky one, though - as there isn't much darkness about at the moment.

Not fail, just trying to keep it near the top. I probably shouldn't have specified night, with hindsight. Never mind, hopefully someone will consider this

If it isn't by tomorrow night I will do it!

If I am not mistaken, that is Swithland reservoir, just past the Great Central railway bridge.

That road is not a bridge - it's more a causeway, or isthmus between the larger reservoir to the North, and the smaller body of water to the South.

But it has water each side I suppose, so would be bridge like to the casual observer.
Small world...that's about 10 minutes from where I live...

So is anyone going out? It's nearly dark.

My excuses so far are, it's 15 miles away and due to having a new kitchen fitted at the moment, I can't find the custard powder.
