    Hey Nic08

    Thanks for the compliment.
    I think the best one of the last set was the shot of "April" the little green motor-launch, the others were fairly ordinary, but the best I could manage on the night.
    I'm limited in what I can do by the Fuji ultrazoom's standard compact sensor, which cann't really cope with night photography, long exposures, high ISO etc., but you're welcome to save the posted resized images for your desktop or whatever.

    regards,

    Benjamin

    Night shots from Rushcutters Bay, Sydney Harbour

    A few more night shots from a different marina in Sydney Harbour, this time at Rushcutters Bay, which is east of Cowper Wharf; not as much light at this venue though...

    The first three shots are SOOC, no pp, the last three I raised the brightness somewhat in pp. All shot manually.

    (I'd love to build a week-ender type sloop of about this size, one of these days, to enjoy in my retirement, ...
    of course if I can afford to build an ocean going cruising yacht, like those in the background of this shot, after gaining some w/e sailing experience, well I might one day be able to visit y'all over in SoCal (or even NoCal) one day! )

    Shooting here was complicated by the lack of light, the fact I was shooting without a tripod and there were no flat surfaces to rest the camera on: the sea-wall at Rushcutters Bay is convex curve shaped, so a little hard to get a level, still, no hands shot with the camera balancing on a dome-like crest an inch from slipping into the drink..., and of course the gentle lap of the night sea swell moving the boats about...

    cheers,

    Shooting with the tripod made a big difference, as opposed to the last post where all shots were taken resting the camera on the sea-wall (seen in these photo's), although of course a tripod cann't assist with subject movement and the boats were moving due to a fairly stiff NE'er, & associated swell, blowing in across the harbour.

    congrats on using a tripod, now go find yourself a waterfall!!
    or on second thought, since you love boats, go to the water and get some of those soft blurred wave landscapes
