Following on from my Wellington Pier upload, Wellington Bowl is the building at the end of this short pier. (You can see a bit of it on the left hand edge of my previous upload). Taking a walk round to the back, I was amazed at the beautiful colours of the building's lighting, which kept changing every few seconds, cycling from red to blue to magenta to green - not necessarily in that order - but presented in that order here as taken.
Again, each shot taken hand-held at ISO 1600 and a slightly slower shutter speed of 1/8 second.
A few have commented in my previous upload about getting sharp hand-held images at these slow shutter speeds, so my tips are:
Get your self relaxed and stand with feet slightly apart.
Tuck both elbows in so they rest against the sides of your body.
Hold your breath (neither fully inhaled in or fully exhaled out!).
Don't jab at the shutter button, but very gently squeeze down on it until it fires.
Having Vibration Reduction turned on does help too!
Single Raw images processed in Adobe Camera Raw 7, and tweaked in Photoshop Elements 11.
Thanks again to everyone for your votes & comments on my previous uploads, it really is appreciated and encouraging.
