Hi again!

Last Saturday I screwed my new 50 mm 1/1,8 lens on my camera and went downtown to be with at the oldtown-festival. It was a wonderful warm summer night at the late spring and I realized that this lens is not only easy to handle, but also it has a great light yield. The following shots I made free hand – about one hour after sunset. It’s the wonderful time when the sky is changing from dark blue to black – we call it “Blaue Stunde” – the “blue hour”…

 

 

Some of you may remember that I posted a HDR-photo of this church last year in November (or so). The problem that I had is that I’m in urgent need of a steady tripod – an I mean steady – to make more crispy HDR’s. I think I found a good one that is not too expensive. OK, I ordered one and it will be delivered the next few days. Then I can start with some HDR-panorama-shots… We’ll see πŸ˜‰

    • Oh thank you. Believe me I was really surprized when I saw the image the first time. Hand held – and that darkness!

  4. Now that is a serious lens there and the hotos are wonderful. I have a tripod and a monpod too. I use them all the time as my old hands are steady any more.

    • It’s so new. My dealer unpacked the first batch for Northern Germany – and I was the first one who purchased it πŸ˜‰ The 1 : 1,4 was a bit too expensive for me. So good that Nikon launched this one πŸ˜‰
