My son had a hockey tournament in Gatineau, just beside Ottawa. Our hotel room was really standard, but we had a breathtaking view of the Rideau Canal and the Parliament from our window.

Shot very early in the morning through a not-so-clean room window.

Aperture f/11
Shutter 1/500 sec.

Nikon D7000

I really don’t like how this gets oversharpened and too contrasty upon upload to RedBubble…

    Love the light on the bridge Jo.
    Was waiting, waiting, waiting for the first set of pics from your new cam … :-)

  • Thank you Vikram! I didn’t have time to play with it as much as I wanted, because I was still working and spent several days with a bad sinus headache. I could not concentrate on the user manual to learn how it worked!

    I did a series of boring still life shots last week with both cameras to compare ISO in low light conditions, but my DOF was too shallow for that kind of test, so I will retry maybe today and post in my blog.

    Exceptional silhouettes! It is amazing to see a whole city like this and to recognize its elements! Excellent shot!

  • Thank you Joanne! It was so beautiful! The sky was really lighter than this actually, but I wanted it to be as detailed as possible so I exposed for the sun (out of the pic) and got the silhouettes, which I liked a lot.
