What was the settings for this? I love night photography, but mine never come out any good, lol.
Looks like Flinders Street Station in Melbourne, Victoria.

Sorry, I meant iso, aperture, shutter length, etc.

My night shots never come out much good either, LOL. The settings were nothing remarkable for that shot; ISO200, f/14, 5 seconds. What you might be seeing in it though is it was run through Topaz Adjust and Viveza to give it a bit more "pop".

Do you use a filter? Maybe I just need better lenses, lol.

No lens filter used on that shot.

Thanks. I thought maybe the star-like lights where caused by a filter.

Its one of the features of this lens and how it controls direct light


cheers

Any lens will cause stars when shooting strong light sources and stopped down enough (due to diffraction). The problem is that a lot of lenses flare quite a bit in that situation, while the DA 15 is amazingly resistant to flare.

I looked at the Winter Canyons series on another forum and mistakenly looked at this thread (all of it),over the weekend. I was truly amazed by all the wonderful pics, and how much fun every one was having with the lens. I didn't mean to but the DA15 f/4 opened a browser and the next thing I knew was that UPS was delivering a new lens to me on this Wednesday.

Congrats! (and Rodin - the 15 can't control matter, only minds - you opened the browser, or at least, your hand did. )

Am I the only one who really enjoys shooting portraits with this lens? It's a bit wide for them, but they're really fun to do with this lens.
