    D800 Experimenting.

    by muzza22au » Mon May 07, 2012 12:21 am

    Here is a photo which I used the roof of our GFU (Grass Fire Unit). Had the full moon at my back. Due to the roof being sloped the photo was not level, so I levelled it out in G.I.M.P and this is the result, I kinda like the black background :) (thoughts?)

    Here is the EXIF.

    Shutter Speed: 30 sec
    Aperture: F/5.6
    ISO: 800

    (Seems to be more noise visible now that its uploaded to Facebook)

    Yeah I have been looking at the manfrotto carbon fibre range. But due to weight restrictions (18 seater plane) I cannot bring too much baggage out to work.

    Yeah so it seems, I may use photobucket or even just upload my good ones to my redbubble site.

    So I am to take it no one likes my sloped perspective from the roof of a landcruiser lol
