Steady hand

I rec­og­nized the cathe­dral im­age from Ask Ja­son (page 90, is­sue 74) as a build­ing in cen­tral Val­letta, Malta. I was back there in May 2016 and had just bought the D5300 with a 18-140mm lens. Con­cerned about the ‘no flash’ signs posted around, I se­lected the ‘no flash’ set­ting on the Mode dial and took this shot hand­held. I’m sur­prised and im­pressed that it came out pretty sharp. Chris Tol­last, via email Hand­held long ex­po­sures are usu­ally a no-go – but you must be a statue to get an im­age as sharp as this. Ex­cel­lent work. The cathe­dral is St John’s Co-Cathe­dral in Val­letta, a 16th-cen­tury high baroque cathe­dral that’s per­fect for pho­tog­ra­phy.
