Our mission had a conference at a beach in Spain about 2 hours south of Barcelona. It was cool out, but the sun brought a few people to the Med. Thisis Papa Luna'scastle at Peniscola. He was the Spanish Pope for a few years several centuries ago. Both taken with the DL and Tamron 24 - 135. The second one was a time exposure of about 5 seconds with a small aperture so I could get the star effect on the lights. I don't remember who mentioned that in a former post, but to whoever it was, thanks. It makes the picture a little nicer!

I like both of those.

Espcially the night shot.

Thanks, Eddy. There was a cement wall between the beach and the sidewalk and it worked perfectlyas a tripod.

Glenn, as always I look forward to the pictorial report of your travels which you compile so well! Two most excellent images!

Great Shots both. I Really like the Night Shot the best. I tried my hand at that a few weeks Ago on our cruise and it was an unqualifed disaster.
I was trying to get some night Shots of the Fort"El Moro" in San Juan as we cruised past at Approx 10PM. I was shooting with My 28-105 FA 3.2-4.5. Maybe it was that the Ship was moving but The pictures all Ended up in the recycle bin.
Im Sorry Now that i left my 50 1.4 at Home!!!!

Great job.

These are both great shots. I especially like the night one. Cool effect.

Two great shots, the second one is outstanding.

Thanks Jay, Phil, Patty and Rodney. Phil, I am sure it was the motion of the boat. I tried doing a hand held and it was quite blurry. I also use the 2 second delay on the shutter options so as to help keep down camera shake from the mirrorbanging around in there.

Both are nice but the night shot makes it for me.

The first one is funny - the lone sunbather on a lonely beach with the lovely castle in the background. I really like it and it brought a smile to my face. However, I can't argue with those who prefer the night version- it is special.
