    RovingMike Crucifixion's a doddle...

    Like the first if you crop the half lights off, but rest are showing blur or noise or both. Exif says 100th at only 250 ISO. At the 300 end indoors this must surely have been massively underexposed, are they rescues?

    Yes big time...about +2.5 on exposure and auto + slight warm on the WB....

    I wouldn't go that far, it puts her head too high in the frame. The three lights are fine, or you can zap them.

    I hope she likes her photograph splashed across the forum. I know it is her risk in a public place, but I might estimate she is extremely well to do.

    A shopping mall is a public place in a way, but it is also probably private property, where there could well be restrictions on photography. Not knowing where this is, I would not positively know whether this is the case in this instance.

    More to the point, did you buy the lens?

    The only reason I ask is because I'm thinking of buying one myself :)

    She is lovely but the noise levels are far too high IMHO. However, 2.5 stops shouldn't be necessarily create that much noise on the 7200 (I think). Were you shooting in RAW or is this a heavy(ish) crop of the original as well?

    Hi ''Nikonchris''...firstly , may i ask , was the lady aware of the camera ...if so I think she is a really beautiful woman , although there was a little trace of annoyance in one or two shots...

    Yes I did buy the lens as they had an offer on so relatively cheap.... yes it was shot in raw...heavily cropped and exposure increased by +2.5 in elements.

    I don't think she was aware....

    I believe this was the original un-cropped version but both WB and exposure adjusted in PS elements. I was trying to check out the lens so was pushing it as far i I thought sensible/silly ....max apeture...max focal length...slow shutter, slow iso etc etc...and I think it did OK....so Alan will you be buying one on the strenght of these photos....?

    Hi Chris,

    I've had an eye on this lens for a while and your shots certainly haven't put me off, given that I tend to shoot in less challenging light! I currently use a 24-85 as a walkabout lens for street photography and I'm happy with it but there are cityscapes and details on buildings I'd like to take but my current lens just doesn't have the reach. And hopefully it will also open up more possibilities for me, so yes, I've just about decided to go for one.

    Hi Alan...I actually rather like it....its small and compact and relatively light. The lens that I actually wanted but could not get a deal on was the 70-200 f4 as it has quite a reputation. I will keep my eye out for that and a deal...
