So, went down to Austin for the weekend. I had a specific group of shots I wanted to do of SRV and the Austin skyline. Long story short, very frustrated, not happy with how any of them turned out. All very noisy. Even bracketed shots for HDR were so noisy I couldn't get them to look any good before merging.
After processing the hell out of one, here's what I've come up with. Whip me, beat me, that's the only way I learn.
Looks like FLICKR is dumping the EXIF data so here you go.
Canon EOS 5D Mark II w/ 17-40L @ f/18 15 second exposure ISO 3200 Aperture Priority mode.
