Night of the San Francisco Giants victory in San Francisco

With safety in mind - I didn't want to carry a tripod into the crowd. But I wanted to get some images nevertheless. The compromise was to shoot at ISO 5000. Some extra time in Photoshop but impressive on the whole. I remember my first experimentations with Royal-X pan B&W film. ISO 1600 and grain the size of whole grain wheat.

Canon 5D MkII w/ 16-35mm f/2.8 lens: ISO 5000 - at 16mm - f/2.8 - 1/25 second
