The low light ability of these newer DSLR's with their high ISO ranges is unbelievable. Hanging out by the water front (freezing in this weather) I was hoping to catch a sunset shot that did not happen. Instead I got this blue on blue night shot.
After the light was gone and it was pretty dark, I tried a few long exposures off the pier into the Long Island Sound. I used a fast but not superfast ISO of 1200. The exposures times I varied from about 1 to 4 seconds hand holding the camera braced up against the railing.
About a dozen shots of trial and error led to this gem.
