D750 - Shooting in the Dark

 On my early morning walk to work today there was a little mist about and I decided to shoot a few pics. I am not claiming that any of these are any good artistically but what struck me is how good the D750 shoots in the dark at high ISO's. I could get much better results using a tripod and low ISO's but who has time for that on the way to work? 😊

All these were taken hand held, manual mode, 1/40s, f4.0 & ISO3200 and the lens was my spectacular Nikkor 50mm f1.8G "nifty fifty". I ran these briefly through DXO Photolab 3 and these are the results.

Landskrona Stadshuset (cityhall)

One more from my walk Friday evening with my camera and the fantastic Nikon 50mm f1.8G lens. I put that lens on my camera about a year ago and I like it so much I haven't bothered to remove it. It's a lot more versatile than one would imagine and the image quality is simply wonderful!

Minimilist Sunset

Taken with my trusty 50mm f1.8. Spectacular lens that costs very little, best value for money when doing a cost vs image quality assessment.

A Freckle Portrait

Occasionally I take a portrait that simply stands out from the rest. This was one of them.

I am Very Impressed by the Panasonic 25mm f1.7

I am very impressed by the Panasonic 25mm f1.7 as it is exceedingly sharp even from f1.7. Normally in post I always apply a little sharpening to my photos but so far on the OMD E-M5 Mll with both the 12-40mm f2.8 and this Panasonic Lumix 25mm f1.7 I don't have to do a single bit of sharpening because the raw files are already so sharp that any more just simply isn't necessary.

I took the bike pic below while out on a ride this morning, it is shot wide open at f1.7 and it's tack sharp on the bike. The second pic is a 100% crop from the same photo.
