You joined in 2005 and this is your first post? What ya been doing? Better late than never I guess. Nice clean colorful shot. Little noise and it looks like everything is in focus. Its too bad you didnt get all of the green arc included. Also you will be told the corner of the building should be vertical so I may as well tell you first.

A cool picture! I agree that both points would make it better (including all of the green arch and straightening the building's line). Next time you take a picture like this, take this one and then try one using ISO 200 and a faster shutter speed. Your camera shouldn't introduce much extra noise at that ISO and the faster shutter speed might give you a slightly sharper picture. This one is awesome considering how slow the shutter speed was (even with SR you must have a steady hand).

I do not own PS, can someone tilt the image for me and repost it? I think one day soon ill set a night aside just to walk downtown and take pictures with no other purpose in hand. There is so much cool stuff to shoot, and at 10-11pm, its dead on the side streets like this one.

Sounds like a challenge to me.

Taking night picture at ISO 100 without tripod and this result is seems good to me..

@mtngal if you rise ISO then the machine allow faster shutter speed but also machine would increase the aperture, won't increasing aperture make it less sharper? What is the most important on sharpness of an image?

All things being equal, raising the ISO would decrease the aperture.

so, a lower fstop (2.8) will be less sharp than a higher fstop (8.0) ? I love to learn, but im a little confused here? Or less sharp in the same focus area? or all over the picture?
