I have been a bit ill today and I am in need of a little rehab. Luckily, my dear Lucile at bridging lacunas, has kept the Rehab Clinic open for us Photo101’ers, so I wanted to share this photo with you here.
This photo was taken as our cruise ship docked into Noumea in the South Pacific. It was still a little rocky and it was late evening, so we weren’t going to be getting off the ship. I loved how the lights were reflecting in the water, so I got to work taking some photos.
These were taken with my Olympus OMD EM5, handled on a rocking boat at about 8pm. I used my trusty 17mm f/1.8 lens (35mm equivalent). I took the photo at the widest aperture (f1.8) to let in as much light as possible, but it was still pretty dark, so I had to compensate with a slow shutter speed (1/10 second) and bump the ISO up to 2000.
I hope you enjoy this photo.
