    Default Sunrise outside my home



    Hi all,

    I saw this sunrise outside my home. Then I want to apply what I had learn from reading on the internet about taking pictures of the Sun. The surroundings(the hole that I took the picture of the sun) is the construction of the lift upgrading


    I will like to have your feedback on photography techniques.
    The following is the camera settings used to photograph this picture.
    Nikon D60
    Aperture priority
    52mm
    1/4000
    F/14
    ISO100

    This picture is straight from the camera..

    Thanks

    Ouch. I don't think it's healthy to expose the sensor or the interiors to the sun directly.

    What's lacking in this sunrise shot, I feel, is that there is no 'basis' to see that the sun is actually rising. Like, normally, we see a sunrise/sunset accompanied by the horizon. In your case, it's already in mid-sky. Colours aren't attractive as well.

    May I ask, why did you compose this shot this way?

    oh no, i just knew that it is not healthy to do like this.. tks for informing me.

    i just feel that perhaps in a few months time, i will not get to see the sun rise after the construction is done!.

    anyway, appreciate your critique about the horizon part and the part about not healthy to expose the sensor like this. tks

    C'mon, be reasonable. 1/4000sec an f/14 - do some maths to find the tiny portion of energy.
    if this would be troublesome then why do we see hundreds of shots here without readings hundreds of reports about damaged sensors?

    Lets get back to the thread.

    TS, i think you do nid to read up on composition as well as practice more often. Do a search here to see how ppl capture their sunsets and rise. next time try lengthing the exposure it might render out some nice colours.

    I would like to share my piece for comparison, if you dont mind.


    Click to see the larger image. Feel free to browse the set.

    Also taken from home, from the kitchen but I'm quite surprised at the difference.
    Camera: Nikon D40
    Exposure: 0.006 sec (1/160)
    Aperture: f/13
    Focal Length: 55 mm
    ISO Speed: 200
    Adjusted contrast to boost the silhouette.

    I hope to enlighten you with my humble example since I dont have the words to describe it. Let me know if you want the image removed.
    Already abused my D40 and D80 for my flickr
