What do we do on a dull rainy Sunday afternoon? we go to the movies and we even bring our camera - we never now if something interesting might be discovered en route to the cinema. And as the numerous previews were shown, I said to myself What the heck, how about testing this night shot feature on my camera. This is the result, I'm disapointed in the feature but in this specific case it did capture the feel of a dark cinema with only silhouettes of people in front of me. The night shot on the Sony F717 does not make color pictures only sort of a greenish B&W shots. The night framing will take make vivid colors but it implies that the flash will work and I didn't want to bother the other viewers, especially after two old ladies behind me said loud enough that I could hear "Will she play with her camera during the film ??" grrrr...

This is a really fun shot, Nina! I really REALLY like the effect. You capture the mood and atmosphere of going to the movies in a nostalgic way. Superlative!

Clever idea, wonderful capture, great catch of oportunity, interesting composition! 2 thumbs-up!

Effet réussi! On a l'impression d'être dans un vieux cinéma. L'expression des gens à l'écran est superbe et étonnament claire. Bravo pour avoir osé.

This is my type of shot Nina. I really really like it. Ther is a special, spoky cinema feeling here. My camera adds a strong tint of green to the pictures as well, when shooting inside. When i shoot outside though, it seem to be much better at capturing the colours. So i suggest you try outside as well and hope that it works better then.

Funny, i was thinkig of a title for my next posting, taken yesterday/sunday afternoon. One idea that i had was "Sunnday afternoon" :) The name didn't really work with my pic though so i have to come up with a new name...still strugling

I like your idea in this pic and your composition is good either!

This is something I have always wanted to do Nina....but was always afraid the flash would go off by mistake from a faulty manual setting:-)As it turns out,you managed to get two aspects of the TE scavenger hunt...a bald head and movement ! Well done.

The mood and ambiance are very well rendered, and your composition is so original. Well done and very well transposed mood. Congratulations Nina.

This is really cool! I like the way you speak of the old ladies - very humorous! I have taken similar night shots, and they always have this "red" tone for some reason. I like this - it is more "night" like. I'm surprised you are allowed to take shots in the cinema. In South Africa, we would get arrested!

Very craetive shot, I think it is great the way you captured the screen so perfectly, I did a workshop on it just for fun.

Great picture.

I do the same kind of thing. You should have turned to them and said, "not if you let me take your picture, ladies...". ;)

I like this shot. It has a surreal feeling to it that is actually pretty effective. I like the muted colors on screen and the ghostlike audience.

J'aime beaucoup l'effet produit, et les couleurs obtenues. On se croirait à l'époque du cinéma muet :-)
Ces deux personnes devant vous semblent irréelles, quasiment des fantomes.
Très intéressant, mais à ne pas reproduire trop souvent, sous peine de vous faire agresser par quelques vieilles dames acariatres... ;-)

Never thought about that kind of shot, but it's really good and you've got the mood of your title here, Nina. I like the idea, the very soft greenish colors, and having the feeling of being there too!
