Experimenting in Union Square

Last night while wandering through Union Square the light falling on this spindly leafless tree struck me as quite pretty. I experimented with f-stops and shutter speeds to get a picture that captured the effect, and finally managed this one at f4.8, 1.3 seconds, ISO 400.

that looks so interesting! Very well captured! It reminds me of the whomping willow...

You've obviously moved well beyond the days of auto shooting. Nice photo!

The whomping willow! Amy, you're so right.
Ash, thanks for the comment and the assistance with the photo!

don't you mean 1/3 of a second? 1.3 seconds is a lot!
I also love how Ash talks to you via your blog!!!
Auto shooting is for suckers.

King Me - It was actually 1.3 seconds. I had to balance the camera on my camera bag to steady it during the long exposure.
