Venice by night

any coments welcome. I took a few different versions of this and even though i used the tripod and the timer i still found that they weren't really sharp on a low ISO and a slow shutter speed. The ones that seemed to be better were the ones i took using a higher ISO and a slightly faster shutter speed, did also use mirror lock up on some of them, any suggestions of explainations as to why this is and what would be better in the future would be welcome. I Did think that using my tripod at long last!! That they would all be sharper...how wrong was i!!

    I like this one Donna, don't see a problem with the softness. Good colours and a warm atmosphere.

    I think that anytime you are shooting with a faster shutter it will help the sharpness of the image, but of course the increased ISO will reduce the quality. What sort of camera were you shooting with and what kind of tripod? How stable was the bridge you were on, was there crowds walking by, a slight breeze? Or did you just have your apeture too wide open and not quite have the focus where you wanted it in the dim light? Could be any number of things I guess. Of course the tripod helps, you just need to make sure everything is sturdy enought. Sometimes even just the motion of the shutter can affect an image.

    Very romantic place... the right place for the first date...
    Nice colours, soft reflections on the water...
    But the picture is still. I would insert into this frame some movement to make it live. I mean it would be great that on that bridge there would be a couple...( or at least one person passing by)
