    Nice framing. As I have noted before, seeing the equipment you are working with and the exif info would be very nice. Are you and other professionals that do this afraid that your work will be replicated? I do not see that as a risk, but you must have your reasons.

    morrisroos Thanks Don... sure, i can share how about the EXIF about this shot... it was from Twin Peaks to see the Orange Coit Tower... the sky was clear in that day. the lens was the 600mm + 2X converter at 1200mm . I cropped it to square format. F11 20 seconds ISO 100.. hope this will help. the Challenge part to the long exposure with long lens is to stable the lens at night ... please no wind :)

    Great shot David! Excellent image clarity. I use a big umbrella sometimes to shield the camera and tripod from the wind...assuming its coming from the proper direction ;-)
  • David Yu PRO 3y

    Eric Dugan thanks of your big umbrella idea. I may try it next time. the long exposure at night with the big lens is not easy to take such shot.

    I was once told a story from an established and reknown photographerabout how he felt about sharing exif info and such and he was offended by those who thought the camera was what made the photographer. I too feel that way. If someone really wants to learn about photography, I believe it is important to understand the reason and inspiration for creating the work, not the f stop and exif information.

    In the moment sf Thanks of your input! I totally agree with you. with the EXIF info will help you understand more about the photos? or see who was behind the camera at that time with their ideas for the shot. even you know how to take this picture or what gears to take this picture but the weather condition changes all the time. The exposure will be different in each shot.. no one can replicate the same shot again.
