  #190 Low Light Photography
Entry 19 of 25
AM delivery       ©2017 rd52
Canon EOS 7D       19th place, 27 points
1/25s, f5, ISO 6400, ?, Aperture Priority, Pattern, no flash
Post-Processing: Denoise, denoise, denoise. In Rawtherapee denoised using the impulse noise reduction, noise reduction, median filter, and used RT's noise reduction in the wavelet section. Saved as a tiff, opened in Affinity Photo and a little more noise reduction, then I used the clarity filter, reduced size then slight USM applied.       Extra Info: Early morning delivery by the Chiquita banana boat coming into port with the help of the two tugs.

    Thanks for all the comments and suggestions. It was quite dark when I took the pic as you can see by the ISO and shutter speed. I was at 220x1.6=352 mm. with the lens. The ship was moving so I couldn't use a longer shutter speed or lower ISO. As it was I shot in continuous hi-speed to try and get a sharp pic shooting at such a slow speed.

Again thanks for the comments plus the suggestions.

    Everything is about right except it does look like it's a washed out a bit in the fog. If that is the idea, I think maybe a little more sharpness would work best.

    Certainly is low-light. I like the idea of the ship's lights being the sole source of illumination; however, the overall image seems to be underexposed, making it difficult to appreciate the ship and foreground details.

    I suppose it would be better with more contrast in PP.

    Good composition - a touch more brightness and contrast could bring out the scene without losing the low light feel. You might need to use manual focus here; not sure you had enough light for autofocus to work right.

    Good shot - sadly too much noise.

    Is all the grayness fog? Almost looks like a painting.

    I think in this case your ISO was way too high, you can used noise reduction if you wish, unless you already did. This also lacks sharpness and is way under exposed. Looks like if you got those things right the photo would of been pleasant enough.
