i like the photo even with the tree . i tend to think  someone mighta gotten annoyed if ya rocked up with a chainsaw and cut it down  just to make  the photo better,   so i would maybe have moved up a bit  to the right and excluded both tree and cabana, if it worries you.

#5608 D3200 packs a punch

Posted by jason on 24 October 2013 - 03:00 AM

The new line of Nikon cameras are really superior to most everything else on the market. Check out the rating for the D3200 vs Canon's new 70D and even the 5D MKIII:


The Middle weight D3200 score the same or better than the 5DMkIII in every category save the ISO vs Noise... which is to be expected give the FF vs DX sensor size. Against the 70D it just crushes it in performance and rubs salt in the wound with price.



great post thanks for that ..

Took this one of Friday... not completely happy with it, the high fog made seem'd to add some banding and light refraction (could be something else, not completely sure what it is) to the photo. Oh well it's still neat...




Oh and for settings f10, 55 seconds, 200mm and 100 ISO.


I suspect I should have increased my f-stop and reduced my shutter speed, still new to long exposure.

that is  an  awesome  photo,


cant wait to get into the city lights again, not much around here but trees , so i have  been experimenting  did a 593 second shot  just for the fun of it last night, night becomes day   :)
