Photography in the dark

I shot quite a lot of images in low light in the last year. These were processed with a heavy hand and though these are not favorites, I think they are interesting.

This image is meaningful for me because of all the photography classes I have taught. This is not one of my students but very well could be.

I have no idea what the boy on the right is doing with his head down so low but I love the dreamy quality the ocean took on when I smeared the pixels to the maximum.

I've found that night photography is very hard to do whether you are trying to capture reality or not. This is a rare shot that "looks" exactly as it did to my eye at the time.
