The guys in the fish market were nice enough to let me sneak in for one bow shot. I wish I could of waited another half hour so the back light was less or gone.

Nice shots Walt... The 3rd is (IMO) the best, but all three are great.

How dark was it? I was amazed at how light the sky was when I tried... It was a dark night, but almost seemed like daylight after the long exposure.

Thanks Blake.

It was fairly dark but not dark enough. It's to bad the sky was blown out.

It's crazy how the choppy water looks so smooth with the long exposure.

It'll be hard to compete with your shots... But here's one of my first attempts. I learned pretty quickly that I needed a tripod.

I agree... But I think that's what makes the 3rd shot 'framable.' The soft water makes the boat stand out really good.

Sick shot Blake. A tripod is a must for long exposure.

Forrest just told me something I didn't know last week when we were doing long exposure shots. Go into the menu and turn on your long exposure noise reduction. It might help with the noise you have in the sky.

I'll have to look into that... I didn't know there was such an option. It'd probably help clean things up for my next attempt.

Manual...custom function...long exposure noise reduction.

You can lock up the mirror too but I've yet to do that.

Locking the mirror up is really only "necessary" if you're shooting with a long lens (100mm and up if I had to guess), or if you're using a crappy tripod. If you've got a wide angle lens on your camera and you're using a good tripod, you'll likely never see the difference. Oh, and you won't have to worry about remembering to turn mirror lock up off when you're done.

I like picture number 2 best. I might have liked 3 better, but I'm not digging the green light that's shining all over everything. It isn't as evident in 2.

Joe, what are you using for a remote? I just do not get why Nikon does not make a simple wireless trigger for our cameras.

i bought a nikon ml-l3 wireless remote for the d70 for 10 bucks.

Ah, I thought you were using your D200...Pocket Wizards seem to be the most common trigger means for a D200.

Pocket Wizards are awesome. Especially for firing strobes. But in the case of triggering a camera you need to buy a $100+ cable. You can get a few online for cheeper but you need the pre-trigger one that doesn't let your camera go to sleep. Like the shots though!

Joe, WRT your picture, I love how long exposure shots make trees look surreal, almost as if they are more real than real life. Very cool.
