Default Fz40- Architecture (Low Light)

I've had my Fz40 for around 2 months now and this is the first time I have tried my hands on architecture photography.

The pictures are taken in either S, A or M modes because I hate the auto-lameness



F2.8,ISO200,1/10, handheld


F2.8, ISO80, 2sec, NOT handheld


F8, ISO80, 10sec


F8, ISO80, 10sec


F2.8, ISO200,1/8 sec

I would love to have some suggestions, advice and critique

Excellent low light shots. I think the last one of the National Monument has excellent detail for this type of shot. Well done.

Just wish you would post the full sized shots in your post.

When you look at your photostream on Flicker double click on the small size image. You should now see a larger size of the image. Double click on that image and you sould see a larger image with View all sizes in the upper right of the image, click on view all sizes. Across the top you should see listings for different sizes of the image. (Square, Thumbail, Small, Medium 500 Medium 640 and Large.) Click on Medium 640 or Large depending on the size you would like to post. Right click on the image and chose properties. Highlight the url and and do a right click copy. You should paste this into your post using.

[img]paste the url here[/img]

You can test by creating a new post and type in a subject then paste your url in the body as in the above example and do a preview. Then just go up and hit the forum button and go back without posting.

This is how I do it anyway.

Since you asked for suggestions, my first one would be to shoot more, and post, more of these!

I can offer nothing in the way of technical improvement. These are fantastic shots. I can only dream of getting shots like these. Thanks for sharing.
