This is my first ever photo on manual settings. I never felt brave enough to come off auto.

I wonder how this would have looked at a higher ISO too. I'm just learning here. Nice job.

Behind The Lens

Location

Taken at a vantage point near Grangemouth Refinery

Time

About 20.00 hrs

Lighting

The light was all away, everything had to be done by torchlight and the light in the photo was ambient

Equipment

Tripod

Inspiration

A camera club outing, first time I was encouraged to go off auto

Editing

Just small tweaks to the levels

In my camera bag

I normally leave my bag in the car or house, travel light. My go to lenses are my 70-300 and 50mm

Feedback

Watch out for security patrols lol , seriously watch the sky as the light fades and go for it, light winds help with the smoke
