Ghost Parkour!

The problem with night parkour is the ghostly effect - if you don't use a long exposure with the flash you get only the subject, but if you DO use a long exposure the subject will be transparent if there are light areas behind them.  You could try two separate pictures: Long for the background and short/flash for the subject, then cut n paste the subject into the background...

It's a lot of work, really.

That first shot is awesome, Bendigo's got so much to offer a photographer.

Yeah, I thought it might have been.  I didn't mean to say it was awful or anything, but more...  Unavoidable.  It's cool that you meant to do that, but what choice did you have?  =)

I have several shots like that, and while interesting I find it to be distracting.  Your shots are better than the ones I took, which is annoying.  Grr!

I want an external flash (or just a better flash full stop) for night stuff. I'd love to get some mad shots

It's a plan!
We'll have to be careful not to damage them in the process though...
