Paris streetscape during one of my nocturnal wanderings with my little tourist tripod.

Didn't get stabbed or hit by a car - amazing!

I like...

...the well balanced composition Gary. Also, you have managed to express an incredible dynamic range. The houses can be seen pretty deep in to the street and quite high up despite lack of light there.

How did you handle the noise issue? - In-camera NR or NR software? RAW?

Thanks for sharing! Jens.

Thanks Jens, I use RAW and tend to always have NR turned on so it automatically kicks in when needed for the longer exposures.
The noise is kept to a minimum by using ISO 50 even at night.
