Actual sunset light as the sun was slipping below the horizon...Soft and tranquil!!

Image


Taken with a Nikon D700 FX uncropped Full frame at the noiseless limit of the camera ISO 2000 Lens 500 F4 wide open.

Light is far more important than any 'pro?' equipment

An old photograph taken with probably Nikons worst performer in low light conditions the D200 set at max ISO 320 the highest that gave acceptable results and it still had far more noise than the male lion above @ ISO 2000..But it was possible with the D200 to get an acceptable image because of the great pre sunrise light

Image

Focus distance 11.9 metres and closing on my car window (Car parked at right angles waiting for the approach of the lioness after passing it gently and parking 800 metres further on and waiting)

Sun just catching the hill top left and the lion casting no shadow...10 mins later = harsh light
