Worlds tallest lampost

By cozzmic
Bit of a fun shot. Dubai last November and yes that is raindrops. First rain in 3 years, it was like being home in Scotland except it was hot.

I do make mistakes but thankfully i use a much cheaper camera Smile
Honestly I love your humour as framed here.
Despite their automations these cameras require some more of the human input.
I don't know how many focal points the camera has, but here it has depicted the wrong one which is the buiding behind it.
To my humble opinion what should be the focal point should be the light on the lamp post, and the rest of the buildings should look clear at a higher aperture, F/16, Regardless of the VR feature I would pump the ISO to 400 to compensate for the loss of light through the smaller aperture.
So what you ought to have was the sharpest lamp post which is taller than Dubai's tallest(?) building.
Rain is good Smile

Aye cheers Pablo, in a perfect world lol. Was a passenger in car so very quick snap shot which thought not too bad when doing about 100km/hr in rain. I will endeavor to make sure the camera gets it's multi points right next time. Tongue firmly in cheek, Wink
