Greetings Shaun :) First, many thanks for your recent visit to my Abbey photo and for your thoughtful comments too!
Night photography is one of my favourite pastimes and I extract more pleasure from this than I do from bright sunshine and good light..Perhaps it is simply the challenge of capturing something that otherwise would not draw the slightest attention in broad daylight..I know very little about photography and I learn from experience so when I returned to SLR photography about two years ago, following a gap of some twenty years, I had to re-trace my steps with regard to manual settings..I found no better way of achieving my goal than doing night photography..Now virtually all my photos, regardless of light conditions, are taken with manual settings..
As for this fine photo, you composed it well. However, I noticed a certain graininess (noise) which surprised me, since I know that Nikon cameras do perform exceptional well in low light conditions..On checking the extra info here, I realised why this is so..The biggest enemy to your image sensor is setting the ISO value too high, in this case it is 500..The aperture stop of f/9 is probably too small and your exposure time of 0.001 second is far too short..Better results would have been obtained with an ISO value of 100 with an aperture of f/6.7 and an exposure time of between 1 and three seconds..My tip would be to practice different settings in varying levels of light within your own house but keep your ISO value as low as possible for grain free images..You will be surprised at how easy it is to produce grain free shots using manual settings!
I hope you don't mind me being constructive in my criticism...I see little point in saying "nice shot" and other meaningless comment..
Hi Jim. Thanks for the comment. I am still learning the relationship between the ISO/aperture/exposure but I can not shoot 1-3 second exposures without a tripod so I have been compensating by adjusting the aperture and ISO. I am currently reading Understanding Exposures by Bryan Peterson and looking for what sort of tripod to buy as I am beginning to do a lot more night photography. Thanks for the tip!
Of course Shaun, a tripod is essential to avoid camera shake, I use one with a quick release function.
A hinged base plate, giving 90 degrees tilt of the camera to permit portrait type photos is desirable and a decent spirit level is a useful feature too. Tip..get the best you can afford but don't go for massive weight. Your camera + spare batteries, add in a couple of lens's plus tripod, and all this will be surprisingly heavy.
Boa panoramica, gostei, cumprimentos de Portugal
