    this picture is about colours more than objects, other than the tilted horizon, consider cloning away the stick on the right, it's too close to the edge of the frame, causing too much of an attention against the bigger scene.

    Now that you say it, indeed it's more of a distraction. So change like this?

    You sure it is 76 secs? Thats more than 1 whole minute.

    Do you know when you took that shot. I have a sky/evening shot with the same sky colour too. Just wondering if it was the same evening we shot.

    The image is great. I like the fact that colours for sky and ocean are sysmetrical with the horizion as dividing point. If it wasn't tilted the image would be better.

    It's indeed 76 seconds
    I took it last sunday, so is it the same evening?

    Thanks, didn't expect it will come out in a bit symmetrical really, so I guess this is one of those lucky shots. Didn't bring tripod out that evening, so have to make use of the environment support.

    Still find it hard to believe, especially since I cannot discern any motion blurr on the yacht. Also how did you meter the exposure? Auto or manual?

    Last Sunday then it is not the same evening.

    at 100% viewing there are some blur probably due to camera shake, as I hold the camera by hand . The water was calm at that time.
    Manual exposure, tried a few shots with shorter shutter speed.

    76s handheld is impossible! If you can do that you will be an Olympic champion for shooting! And I am serious! Your breathing will shake the camera. Don't tell me you hold your breathe for a full min? I have not seen a good shot at 1s handheld.

    Had done 1s handheld before, with KM 5D AS it's not too bad. Don't think I can hand held without support for 76s still get good shots
    This one held with my hand on the top of wood or stone fence with some horizontal flat surface for support.

    Ah OK. The KM5D AS has image stabilisation that is equivalent to 3 stops? ie shooting at 76s is like shooting at 5s?

    3 stop is about 8x (shutter speed x2 to the power of 3), so it's about 9.5s. But I don't think it count that way though for this kind of long shutter speed shoot .
    Basically my finger just press the camera shutter on bulb mode on a solid platform and the other hand to further secure it.
