I'm glad the sky is so clear tonight so I was able to get a shot at the moon, venus and jupiter. This shot will do for now.I should really get myself a tripod. I was not breathing nor moving when I was taking this. =)

    yes, david. I don't know exposure or aperture or anything manual (I always shoot auto) this time I tried manual and it took 30 sec. to click.

    This is a wonderful capture of this unusual juxtaposition. You did this without a tripod?!!! Great work.

    actually, there is a pipe gate that I rest my camera to steady it, but I have to hold it very still,

    Great job, El - very hard to do w/o a tripod. I've not been able to take ANY night shots. I don't have a tripod either. I think you did a great job.

    wow....this is amazing!...especially without a tripod! i don't have a tripod either...and there is no way i could stay that still for 30 secs and get a shot like this. great work!!

    is that a plane on the right side?...those little red dots?

  • Litz Go

    Litz Go gave props (8 Dec 2008):

    yes, LP you got a sharp eye. it was an airplane. This spot is where the approach landing is for San Jose International Airport. The shutter speed is so slow (30 seconds!) that the movement of the airplane was caught.

    i noticed it cause i took a pic of an airplane a few nights ago just to see what kind of effect would come out of it. i thought it was pretty neat the way it came out.

    I have done several shots, using auto, no flash, sports mode, landscape mode but they come out like lightning. This I tried the manual and took forever to click!
