  7. Beautiful shot. You must have really steady hands to be able to hand hold the camera for an exposure like that. I love the look of photography at night–so many cool reflections and shadows.

    • Thanks Mike! πŸ™‚ Would’ve been nice to get “stars” instead of half blurry lights.. I like night shots a lot, definitely make a new attempt again soon, this time with tripod!

      • I am thinking of getting a monopod and see how that works. It might not be optimal for really long shots (sometimes I take shots as long as 30 seconds), but it might help to steady the camera for some night shots.

        • I’ve been thinking the same thing! Most times I think a monopod would suffice, and should be easier to carry (+ no assembling) than a tripod.
