Rome Pyramid

I cant tell you where this is - all I know is we were coming from Civitavecchia towards the centre of the city, but if you recognise it please put me right.

Both these Rome images were shot through the glass of a coach. I keep the shutter speed high and aim to get aperture as wide as possible.

This was a lucky albeit well aimed grab shot through a coach window.

There is a nack to this form tourist photography.

Keep the shutter speed high and the aperture wide as possible.

This was shot aperture priority set to wide open which gave a shutter speed of 5000th of a second.

This system will work with SLR and compacts just as well (as long as you have that control on your compact - if not set to sport setting in scene modes)..

The reason for wide open aperture is: You dont want the camera to see the windscreen.
