Entrance to Swansea Marina by night. Even though I used a tripod .. I seem to have got some streaks from the street lamps. Any suggestions as to how to eliminate them gratefully accepted.

Hi Richard, I see what you mean by streaks from the street lamps. Wouldn't of thought that pressing the shutter release would have caused that much movement but you could try using the self-timer to start the exposure. Give it a try.

Adrian.

Nicely caught Richard. Those streaks are not camera shake, the rest is too sharp for that. It is more likely to be the point light source showing up smears on the lens/filter.

I think the shot needed a little less exposure to stop the lights glaring so much, perhaps just 2 or 3 seconds. Did you try any other shutter speeds?

Thats just the glare I think, don't think it's camera movement.
The shot looks good to me.

Thanks for the feedback guys, I did try some variations but with the apertures not the exposure times ... maybe next time I'll just go and fill a memory card with different aperture and shutter speed combinations.

Good night shot. Well done Richard. Think that perhaps some adjustment to the exposure might help, but there isn't all that much wrong with it so far as I'm concerned. Geoff
