my birthday candle

By annettep38  
Elrond (fluffy) and Fafnir (black) say 'Mrouw' and I say thank you Smile for your c&Cs for yesterday's lawn mower. A special thank you to lonely onyx for his valuable clarification Smile

It is -or was- my birthday today and with all the work and hectic this served as my birthday candle: the wee church on the way back. Also had to test my new lens that replaced the 18-55mm
(useless information: this was hand-held at 3200 ASA and pretty grainy, which is a big improvement over rainy)

Very nice night time shot, Annette, and s belated, perhaps, many happy returns: new lens working a treat in your hands, and I have to say for an ISO of 3200 the grain is not at all obvious in my eyes.

I remember the ''early'' days of digital when you would get this much noise at 400 ISO,
so a big improvement here for 3200 !!
A well lit shot annette.

A happy birthday to you.

Lovely capture of the light on the church. Personally, I find the moon a distraction

Lovely mood shot Annette. I do not mind a bit of grain/noise as it seems to add to the atmosphere and mystery.
