Long Exposure: City Lights Reflected

It was interesting playing around with long exposure... and hard.
I probably should have read my camera's manual before I ventured out into the Berkeley Marina at 9:30, my frozen fingers fumbling with the camera's settings and various knobs and buttons.

But I think it was an overall success, especially because these landscapes the camera was capturing were pitch–black as I looked up, over my camera's lens. But after 30 seconds of the open shutter, What's this? (Semi) well–lit pictures appeared on the screen!

That second shot is magical...I don't think I've ever seen anything quite like it. What are we seeing here?

It's actually a puddle with light from a street lamp casting around the water. I really love this one. Slightly magical.

I am always impressed by your subject choices, the way you see pictures in things invisible to others.
Great work.
