China Airlines A330 Airbus heads for the runway at Sydney airport at 10:10pm at night. The calm water was illuminated by the full moon, the plane lights and other nearby lights. The brightness was due to half second shutter speed and ISO5000 with F/4.0 aperture. A Nikon D800e was used for this photo - my first go with this new Nikon. On first impressions, it is capable of staggering results in low light if used correctly. ISO8000 is quite noisy on this camera, so ISO6400 or less must be used, with a resulting lower shutter speed, or alternatively, use a large aperture lens.
