Hi! This is a shot I took at the sign of Come Fly Away after watching it. It was a very very good show, so I took a shot to remember it. I started to learn to use a DSLR a few weeks ago. So far I like shooting! Welcome your advice.

Must be on a tripod? I'm surprised you did that at ISO 100, but it looks great.

Thank you, guys. It was done by hand held. Maybe because 1/6s wasn't too long. Luckily I didn't shake my hands. I haven't bought a tripod yet. But I think it is a very good idea to have one specially for night scene. It is really a hard time for me to shoot without any shaking during a relatively long exposure time.

Well, remember you can push the ISO up to anything less than 800 and still have very little noise with the k7 (I think... at least on my K10 800 is tolerable). That would have given you... 1/45th of a second.

You have very steady hands!

I agree ISO<800 doesn't cause too much noise. I'll try higher ISO next time.

Neons were very bright. So I chose smaller aperture and quicker shutter speed. Any idea for improving? Thanks.
