A night-time shot. Nikon D7000, 3200ISO, 1/10sec, f6.3, 18-250mm zoom at full stretch (375mm film equiv). Hand Held with the support of a handy pole to steady the lens! So…considering the circumstances: not as sharp as I would like, but as sharp as could be expected.
This was taken at an open-air concert given by the village’s brass band in the church square, after dark, on our first full evening in Saas Fee. I spotted this man – he stood out from the crowd – and positioned myself some way behind him, finding a spot where I could isolate his hat above the crowd and gain an uncluttered background. It wasn’t easy. He was enjoying the music and his head didn’t stay still for long. I took about a dozen images over a few minutes and this was the best of the bunch. I liked the result. What do you think?
