Another lovely shot of the windmill! I see you are enjoying your D700 - it opens up a whole new world of low light photography!

Nick Weall on January 6, 2009

Hiya there ~ thanks for your kind words ~ yes this D700 is a whole new ball game ~ that can turn night into day if you aren't careful ~ it is amazing and I have so much to learn still about it! All good fun though. Thanks for visiting all the best from nick

GDavidson on January 6, 2009

Nick, you are very welcome! Indeed, I have had night shots ruined by invisible-to-the-eye streetlights in a distant town. If the moon's out, it can begin to look a little like day with longer exposures!

Nick Weall on January 6, 2009

Well I find I'm fighting to keep the ISO down and allowing a longer exposure time to reduce noise ~ not that it is particularly noisey but....

btw have a peep at my contest shot in the link below and see if you think it is worth a vote or not ~ it is proving to be exceedingly popular so far this month :)
