Default To tyro: light source :-)

Hi John
Nope i never added in any extra light but i used the street lighting to illuminate the scene and a little help from the rising moon nothing more
but i always try to work with available light this just happened to be available at the time

Thats was the hardest point of the shot
I had to continually keep adjusting my viewing angle till i got a shot of the pier but no shot of my tripod shadow..
That took about 5 shots at iso 12,800 adjusting the tripod down a bit at a time.
It may look bright but i assure you the street light was a far bit away and i was shooting in relative darkness

Default Wow! Iso 12800!

Hi John,

Wow! I had looked at your exif data and it said that your ISO was 1600 - but now you tell me it was 12800! And, amazingly, I see no sign of any noise here at all! I've never ventured into the "extended" ISO range at all - do you do this quite frequently?

The 5D Mark II really is a wonderful beast - just imagine what the Mark III must be like for low light work.

This really is an amazing shot, John.

Best Wishes,

John.

H John
sorry i must have typed incorrectly
the shots to get the tripod out the shot were taken at 12800 :-)
I do this in night shots to get the composition correct as it can basically see in the dark.

I have sent you the last shot i took for one last compo check at iso 3200
its un edited out the camera jpeg at 1200 pixels 300dpi :-)
let me know what you think
John
