|Boats in Sai Kung harbour. To the unaided eye this was dark. We could see the boats, but they |
were lit only by shore lights from storefronts. 1/30 sec, f2, 35mm Nikon lens, auto white balance,
ISO 3200, no flash. Richard Wright Jr. photo.
|ISO 450, 1/40 sec., f2. 35mm lens. D800.|
|ISO 400, 1/40 sec., f2, 35mm lens, D800 Including the court lights seemed to make little difference|
to the exposure, and again the color balance on the court was bang on. Richard Wright photos.
Back to the waterfront: here is a shot of a neon sign, and a radical crop.
|A full frame shot, D800, 35mm, ISO 1000, f2, 1/1000 sec, no crop, no adjustment. |

|Shark's dentures, cropped from above photo. No adjustment. The original holds up well|
for this crop though some noise came be seen with this magnification. Richard Wright Jr. photo.
An addendum. Several days ago when we took a ferry ride to Sharp Island, Amy lost her monopod - in a cab, a bus, a ferry, a bookstore or a cafe. Several phone calls later she had no luck finding it, so she bought a tripod at Chung Pui Photo Supplies on Stanley Street, Central, Hong Kong. When we visited Sai Kung for dinner she decided to have one more try at the cafe, Classified. Sure enough, there it was, identified as a walking stick, not a "camera stick". $40 better off it was a good night.
For those who are interested in birding stay tuned for a report on our visit to Mai Po WWF Reserve with guide John Holmes of Walk Hong Kong - a great guide who went out of his way to get us a total of 74 species for the day.
