Great sotirios 2005-09-14 1:46

Very nice photo, i have a question, where the lights that light the building low enough or it was you with your camera that gave the corect light? In my my place we have a castle that is lighted at night but the light is too bright

Default To sotirios: Thanks

Hi Sotiris,

First of all it's an indirect lighting compared to my position which made it possible to prevent an overlighting problem. It was taken by f:3,1 and 2 seconds shutter speed which under those conditions were the optimal values. So, i admit that camera helped much to take this photo. As for the castle in your place, what i suggest is to find a proper point first, and then try to take the picture with tripod and a faster shutter speed (let's say 1"-1,5" and try it with some different shutter speeds too to find the optimal lighting. I guess "S" mode if there is any in your camera would help you take that picture in a good way (it is very influential other than producing some noise, which you can easily get rid off by some programs like Neat Image etc.) .

Hope you can take a nice photo of that castle and upload it to TE.

Take care,
