Island Harbour Sunset

Island Harbour Sunset
Nothing too artistic this time... this one was just an experiment, as I was curious to see how well my newest DSLR would perform in very low light. It was almost a full hour past sunset when I snapped this from the shoreline in front of my Fogo Island (Newfoundland) home. Considering that I was shooting handheld at a very low shutter speed and a very high ISO 6400, I was quite pleased with the results; in fact was rather surprised to see that it even turned out at all, considering how dark it was at the time. (significantly darker than the photo indicates)
(taken with a Sony SLT-A57 and Sony 35mm f/1.8 fast prime lens @ 1/10th sec, f/4, ISO 6,400)

Very good effort, considering the situation. A question: why f4 when you had an f1.8 lens fitted?

Focus On Newfoundlan… has replied to Brian Smithson
Hi Brian, I was happier with the IQ/sharpness at f4 than if I had used a wider aperture... not to mention a better depth of field. Wide open, I could not have gotten both the background and boats in focus at once.

If that's "not too artistic", I'd love to see what you DO consider to be artistic!!! It's fabulous. Thank goodness for ISO 6400 when the light level is low but the sunset beauty is high. You've done a great job here.

Great take. I found out quite some years ago that the camera can 'see' much more in low light than the eye. Case in point here, it seems.

The light is always quite special long after the sun has gone to bed. This has turned out very well. I think modern technology cameras allows us to do more in the low light.
