Beautiful picture. It looks familiar ... did I see it on the Enterprise Web site?

It was Sunday's lead image.

By far the best long exposure fair shot I have ever seen. Wow!

Mark M. Hancock said...

You're too kind.

That's a rockin' shot! It is not always simple and easy to compose a long exposure image. Don't sell yourself short, my Master...;)

Mark M. Hancock said...

Ummm... (speechless). Thank you.

can you tell me what a best shutter, aperture & ISO to get that brilliant picture?

Mark M. Hancock said...

200 ISO, f/22 for 2 seconds.
The point was to get the slowest shutter speed to capture the blurring lights. Getting the highest quality film rating and the most depth of field is always a bonus. :-)
