Default Night Harbor Shot - ZS7

I finally had the chance to use my ZS-7. Trying to experiment with low lighting, I took some pictures of Norfolk Waterside Marina.

P Mode, ISO 80, 4 sec exposure. I didn't have a tripod so I set it on a wood piling and it worked quite well. The long exposure created a cool iced-over effect on the water.

The ZS-7 is an great, pocket-able camera. I really liked mine when I owned one. Excellent image. Shows what can be done when you use your head and do what needs to be done instead of madly snapping away and then blaming the camera when they don't turn out as expected.

Just a bump to the top. It is a very good well done image.

Wonderful shot, really lovely!! I find the large white boat on the right a little distracting, but the 3-mast subject is beautiful. Have you tried cropping?

Hmm, thanks for the idea saly, I already cropped the bottom off with GIMP, but I would have to agree with you that the boat on the side distracts from the subject matter. Once I realized that I-Auto didn't work so well in low light situations, Program mode and aperture mode with some manual tweaks worked much better. I have also attached a close up crop to show some of the detail captured. Most of my early pictures of that day looked good on the camera screen and fully zoomed out, but you could really see artifacts from the noise reduction. I will have to experiment more tweaking the settings.

The last crop is the one I really love. With just a bit of the white bow showing, it give the view a grea in-depth perspective.

Beautiful photo!

I also like your last crop. I can really see the beautiful ship in the middle!
