In case you missed the post I pout up in the general forum yesterday, i thought that as fellow D2X shooters you might find this interesting. The wife and I were at the beach last month to shoot moonrise, however it was obscured by a thin layer of clouds...so I turned the camera on us! It was 9:58 PM and the sun had officially set an hour and a half prior.... This was shot at ISO 800.....f2.8 a THIRTY second exposure and an EV of +5.0! No noise reduction was used. This was shot as a NEF....converted to .jpeg in NC...sent to PSCS for resizing and enough USM applied to overcome the anti-aliasing filter (this was done in NC). I was rather surprised that not only were were able to sit still for what seemed like an eternity (30 seconds) but that it lit us up with this exposure and even picked up shadows! Nothing special....just interesting.
