The part I like best in that great photo Blue is a large letter M on the right hand side of the photo.

Try setting the ISO on your camera to a high setting it helps.


mr smith you have recommended the above technical advice but i have no idea what it means

Those night photos in Malta would have been cracking photos if
you had used a tripod or put the camera on a window sill or some
other solid object and done as Blue recommended, take the photo
using the timer.

The ISO is the cameras degree of sensitivity to light, the more sensitive
it is the lower the light conditions you can work in. If your camera does
not show ISO settings in the menu, select a lower quality of photo. example
"Fine" "Medium" "VGA" if it showed these you would select VGA for low light
conditions. If your menu does show ISO settings, the higher the number the
better for low light conditions. The two photos I have shown at the beginning
of this thread; the first one used an ISO of 800, the second one was taken at
1600 ISO. Hope I've explained it well enough for you to understand. It's easy
to show someone how to do something but hard when you have to write an
explanation of it. Does my head in sometimes.

Mara... just to touch a little more on what Baldy said about ISO’s.... back in the day when you could only buy a “FILM” camera and when digitals weren’t even thought of... you could get films with different ratings on them... you would have seen them..

ISO 100, 200, 400, 800, 1600 etc

For sunny days you’d use ISO 100, 200 .... day/night you’d use ISO 400 and for night shots only you’d use ISO 800 to 1600...

With the digital cameras you can just go into the options and change the ISO to whatever you want like baldy said... you just have to find it!!!

I go back to the days before ISO was heard of, back then film speed
ratings were given as ASA, most speed ratings were 50 ASA 100 ASA
200 ASA and 400 ASA, you could get other ratings in the professional
film range.

That was for slides

Kodachrome for slides, Kodacolor for photos.

Haven't moved on much, have you. :lol:

I've already said in another post (in Photoshop) that the first camera I had
was an old Brownie Box Camera which was found in a dustbin in 1950, it was
ancient even then. I have moved on a bit since those days. :D

I just noticed bottom right of the lovely photo a male person entering the water for a swim. That person should know that is a no,no swimming at night.

Global, that's in Surfers Paradise, and that in the bottom RH corner is a 'surfer' on a surf board.....

Fenella, I love those 'crap' Malta photos too :D really well composed, and maybe a bit of tweaking in photo shop could make it more artistic in a way....which I am going to do soon, Camera House is starting up a session to learn photo shop techniques, where they supply the laptop. I have already put my name down (first one in :D)

Here is one from a series of shots taken in January 2010 when Venus was visible in the night sky near the moon.

Unfortunately to get both Venus and the Moon in a single framed shot both bodies were reduced drasticaly in size and clarity.
