Did you use a tripod? The sharpness is amazing. Love those light reflections on the sea.

Yes I did. I love to shoot in low light, but usually am too lazy to carry my tripod with me.
This was a trial to see if I might be able to keep shooting later, by trying a slower shutter speed, which requires a tripod. By using the tripod and slower shutter, I can use a lower ISO, to reduce noise, as well Thanks for the nice comments! When the harbor is so calm the reflections are very attractive!

ps...thanks for "liking & saving" the image, as well!

Thanks for the nice compliment, Francesc!
Since I love low-light shooting, I'm experimenting with lower ISO & slower shutter speeds, which requires a tripod, to prevent excessive "noise" & "blur".....

But, I was pretty pleased with the result, this time......

Your experiment was a success!!

Thanks, Camellia!
I like to go hand-held and be spontaneous, when I go out with my camera, but taking the time to take along & set up a tripod, especially in low-light situations, can be worth the effort, in many cases!

Nice color reflection on the water!

Thank you, Daanish!
It was a fun experiment to try to get good detail and clarity in such a low light situation, without too much noise!!!
Using a good sturdy tripod, low shutter speed and ISO with a f-9 aperture, seemed to do the trick pretty well......

ps...thanks for "liking" the image, as well!
