K10D Manual Mode with FA50/1.4
Handheld 1/4 sec @ F4.0, ISO 400, Tungsten WB

I was pretty happy with the detail captured. Quite a step up for me from my FZ20.

I really like the angle of the shot.
This is right up my alley, as I love nightshots.

great photo, especially the fact that it is hand held

I wonder what it would look like if you cropped the Hayward & Warwick sign off the right side...

I think it loses something myself, but never be afraid to try something different right? :-)

I did try cropping it a bit more narrowly, but it looked odd. I suppose being digital and all, I could always "digitally erase" the sign. :-)

I think you should retain the sign - it helps balance the photograph. I like it a lot.

I agree, the sign helps the photo. The second crop looks way out of balance IMO.

You're right, it does look odd with that crop. Thanks for trying it to satisfy my curiosity!
