    it's ok, you can put it up.

    this was done without nd filters, taken during twilight, i.e. the time after the sun has gone down when there is still light in the sky. gnd was used to retain the details in the sky while having the foreground exposed correctly.

    exif data reveals iso100, f/19, 206 second exposure.

    i stopped down to extend the exposure, and did this with bulb mode.

    as for being noiseless, just use iso100, make sure the exposure is optimal , i.e. histogram is set as far to the right as possible... and then use a decent NR programme after that.
    Thank you sooo... much.. for generously sharing ! I can't wait to try it now..

    We newbies will learnt a lot from it. Oh, i didn't know that we can adjust the iso to 100 and use 206 bulb mode can result in such nice effect. Usually i tot this kind of result can be achieved by using grad filter/ND filter. Cool. Is ur 206 seconds=3.4 mins?

    thanks to night86mare and TS who start the thread. Appreciate lots.

    It's always like that. TS ask. Someone replies. It is then followed by TCSS and finally...

    yes certainly, but nothing beats getting the heart racing a bit when things get heated up a bit.

    "Watch the horizon" is the term for slanted picture. Every picture takes reference from the horizon unless you have a particular theme where horizon cannot be seen in the picture.

    also one thing TS... in you pic the sun is so high up but yet, the scene is so dark. Doesn't make sense to me. When you shoot sunrise, it is better to shoot it right before the sun peeks out from the horizon... like this... start shooting at around 6:15am. This means you need to arrive and setup your equipment by 6:10am.

    This was my newbie shot my first time at that location...
