Hello,

Just played with my new SLR.


anyways, the pic was taken at like 2am in the morning in Japan. it was cold COLD so I was trying to keep my hand steady. no tripod used.

I have another pic that is edited.

(this pic not photoshopped)


Feedback please.. Would love to post the other one up but the rules said 1 pic per post. =/

thanks all!

Hmm, personally, cannot really "feel" the darkness because of the bright orange light. Are you shooting beside a car with the headlights on? Hmm, there are some noise, i guess u are shooting at iso 400 and above because you are not using a tripod?
If possible, turn the headlights off and shoot with a tripod. When the headlight is off, i am kinda sure your ISO will need to go higher, meaning more noise.

But then, i must say your hands are very steady~ Good attempt man~ :)

its was actually VERY dark.. so i tried to make use of the lights around me (i.e. street lamps, hanging lanterns, the moon, etc).

u mentioned there is abit of noise but if i turn the headlight off, like u said.. more noise.

but that bad isnt it?


so how?


Also, thanks for the encouragement about the steady hand w/o tripod.. it was REALLY tough cause it was cold and the hands were shivering..

btw, saw your pics.. nice.
