Description

The low-light capability of these digital cameras never ceases to amaze me. This shot was taken right after nightfall. 30 sec exposure, natural light. Sandstone Falls, New River Gorge National River.

Love those night shots! It's amazing the quality you can get with a 30 sec. exposure on digitals with noise compensation. This is a very fine example of it! Very well shot, Gary! #92726

Gary,
This is a really nice image -- the blue filter creates a 'moody' feel. I agree with your comment about the low light capabilities of digital -- I am also amazed. I recently did some thunderstorm shots at midnight during a campout and actually picked up foliage colors in a scene that visually appeared black! Keep up the great shooting!
God Bless,
Greg #125701
