Rosetta Mclean Park at Night

Here’s another photo from last night’s outing, taken at a park not far from my home. Boy was it hot and humid last night. Fortunately the humidity just broke about two hours ago and it’s cooled down somewhat. Anyway, this photo was taken on a tripod without the image stabilization on. I notice my photos come out somewhat sharper when the IS if off. Hope you like it.

    wow what a beautiful spot, i wish it wasn’t so freezing cold here so i could go out at night & capture some photos

    p.s i really like the errie moon/clouds

  2. That is correct for some lenses, Dave. Check what Canon recommends for all your IS lenses. I have three IS (Nikon calls them VR for vibration reduction) lenses. Two need the IS turned off on a tripod, one does not.

    Love the moon here. Did you try other white balance settings in camera or post? Might get some interesting results if you do.

      Thanks Scott. Canon lenses will recognize when on a tripod and disable the IS, but I was shooting with my Tameron lens, which does not sport such a feature. I didn’t play around with the WB at all, actually. The colour of the park lighting is exactly as you see in the photo. I’m sure I could have made it much cooler but chose to leave it as is. But you’ve given me food for though and I think I’ll revisit the original and see what I can get out of it. Thanks.

    I like the cool colors of the moon and clouds juxtaposed against the warm artificial light and those curves… Nice job. (note to self: must take out tripod)

    What’s the worst that can happen, right? It’s not like you’re shooting wedding photo.
