Early this morning thought I'd try this. I'm fine with the exposure and can work with that but the image is completely blurred.

Here were my settings:

F 22
ISO 125
Shutter Speed 10 seconds
Camera was on a Tripod
I used the 2 second self-timer for the shot.
I tried the same shot at different speeds (4"....8" 10" they all came out blurry.) This one was the least blurred.

Image was taken with Canon 60D II and Tamron 24-70mm

Where did I go wrong?

Thank You.

Something moved. How stable is your tripod?

Yeah. What was your tripod on? Was something vibrating?

Windy?

Does the lens have IS/VR? Was this on or off?

The lens has a "VC" (Vibration Compensation) button and it was/is in the "On" position. Should it be on/off?

Most recommend when on a tripod to be in the off position.

Yes. If you are using a tripod then you shouldn't need to use the VC as the camera is stabilised by the tripod. Using it with a tripod could in fact introduce vibration.

Canon EOS 6D Mark II • 10s. • f/22 • ISO 125

With no foreground, f22 is totally unnecessary and small apertures hurt IQ. I suspect you could get away with 5.6 or even f/4 and gain 3 or 4 stops.

The difference between ISO 100 and 200 is really indistinguishable. For an image like this 400 might even be indistinguishable from 100. Two more stops gained.

Unless you're planning to print this huge, you could go up to 1600 or 3200, 2-3 more stops.

Nine stops difference that could be added to the SS and shoot at 1/60th (if my math is right).

Just grabbed my old man glasses.

Movement looks up and down, maybe mirror slap.

With IS, the image will often drift slowly. You can see this on the LCD (in live view), especially with a tele lens. So definitely turn IS off for long exposures when on a tripod.

Turn off IS, especially if the lens cannot tell it's on a tripod. Most don't.

Use mirror lock up and a cable release if you want to get rid of mirror slap. Else, use live view and your timer, so that way the mirror is already up.

Particularly with the (older) Tamron lenses, you need to turn off the VC when on the tripod; it likes to try to "predict" movement and will give this result on longer exposures. Additionally, those hotels are not particularly steady...they move around a fair amount, even though the "size" of the movements is generally too small for our eyes/ears to notice.

any chance you can post a link to a larger version? There are some clues here that it is either the IS acting up (never had an issue with this myself but have heard of it), or something completely different. It absolutely is not shake coming from the camera or what it was standing on.
