Hello Marco, Great your Nikon D100, and you use it very well. I guess you used a tripod, for an exposition of 3 S. Do you choose 3 S manually, or the camera did it for you ? Just a little comment. I note that there is a very little shaking in the photo, the boat and lights are not perfectly clear. But, due to the great distance and long exposition, it is difficult to have a better result. Anyway, you did a good job, and thanks for sharing your superb photos. Ilyess from Tunisia سلام من تونس

Thanks Ilyess. The shot was hand-held, I probably took a few and chose the least shaky to upload. The trick is to breathe out slowly, rather than holding your breath.

The camera was probably on prgram mode, but I might have used centre metering to get the exposure right for the building.
