    Finally. It's about time that you came to your senses and dumped that POS P&S
    camera and got a decent D-SLR and L-glass. You must have at least used an f/1.4
    prime lens to get that much detail in the buildings' shadows at night. I suspect
    your camera has a full-frame CMOS sensor too considering the low noise levels.
    You must've had to use pretty high ISOs to get that image.

    Nice example.

    Now if only P&S cameras could do that well.

    Ha,ha,ha. P&S lesson 101! Six second exposure sure would have cramped
    your hand... Should have used a tripod!;)

    when I had a P&S :)

    Awww shucks, now you went and spoiled all the fun. :)

    I've got some remarkable P&S aurora photos and constellation photos. One that
    I'm particularly fond of. A rainbow hued moonset on a remote island-dotted,
    mirror-still, lake that takes your breath away. You have no idea how difficult
    it was to under-expose that one just right to get it to look like a moonset and
    not just another sunset. That is the biggest challenge of the thousands of
    moonlit photos that I've taken with my P&S cameras, capturing too much light
    rather than too little.

    If I shared any of those at full resolution the suicide rates in the DSLR camps
    would drastically rise. I refrain from posting those so as not to completely
    challenge their mental-health (what's left of it).

    Interesting in that the deafening silence from the DSLR proponents persists.

  8. OK - I'll be the first of the DSLR guys to comment - Nice shot.

    Thank you. Of course DSLRs take nice shots too.

    What matters is the photographer, not the tool.
