Reykjavík City Hall on a winter's night

Since the handful of people who voted in the December poll said they wanted to see technical data for the photos, I will, as of today, start posting technical information for some of the shots. These will mostly be the newer photos, since I don't have the information for some of the older ones, especially the scanned photos. Also, some of the older digital shots were processed with software that strips away the exif data and I'd need to go back to the originals to find it, so I may not always post technical information for those.

Reykjavík City Hall, photo taken from the east bank of the Pond. 
Since this was a long exposure, some of the ducks look like long ghostly blurs on the surface of the water.

Technical data:
Camera: Nikon D7000
Lens: Nikon AF-S DX 18-105mm
Date/Time: 2012:01:01 21:05:25
Focal Length: 42.0mm (35mm equivalent: 63mm)
Exposure Time: 6.000 s
Aperture: f/4.8
ISO Equiv.: 100
White balance: Auto (chosen since there were so many different light sources that it didn't matter what was used - I was always going to get colour shifts)
Metering Mode: matrix
Exposure: shutter priority (semi-auto)

Additionally, I used a tripod, and corrected the worst of the colour shift using GIMP.
