The above was taken just at the end of civil twilight, lighted by a sodium vapor street light. I have my little camera set to use 1600 ISO if needs be. The high ISO has brightened the sky. The leaves to the right of the building are actually shadows, from the leaves near the center. I am quite impressed by the quality and capabilities of newer digital cameras, and though this is a relatively high end machine, it is still pocketable. Canon S110.

And, I like the picture; might be a fondness for yellow ochre?
