I just want to let you guys know that my K-5 has changed my sunset photography,
it's quite amazing I can shoot stuff like this without a tripod.
Even with my 5D II, I wasn't feeling comfortable shooting higher than 200 ISO
for the evening stuff because of the shadow noise, but with my K-5
I can easily shoot 800 ISO and get some really clean images.
Dynamic range in 400-800 ISO is also much higher.

I always keep a manfrotto release plate on my cams so that I can hold them to the ground without damaging the cam. For example ...

Hmm. Perhaps Trinity Hall, not that it matters. Great shot!

Of course its post processed It was supposed to be raining. Instead, in town, it was bright and sunny, but with a promise of later storms.
