Of course they don't allow tripods :(

Working without a tripod is like driving a hummer on one wheel, doing manual focus with eyeglasses on a camera like D70 is like driving a hummer on one wheel, blindfolded.

Anyhoo, here are my humble attempts. Many attempts were spoiled by the aforesaid reasons and lack of shot discipline :(

And, sorry folks, can't even think of names for these :)

Too bad you didn't have a tripod! Perhaps you should try some more without. Very Nice!

Thanks all. I have posted more images in the landscape / cityscape forum :).

These are nowhere close to critical sharpness. I would have loved to use a tripod, slow down a lot more and compose carefully :(.

Gorgeous Anand. I know what you mean about hand-held though. My hands are so shaky, I couldn't even come close to these.

Doesn't look like it hurt you much, if at all on these.

That's why I wear contacts :wink:

#1 - Great shot. Love the contrast with the background, clean composition. If I had to nitpick, it'd be the uneven background. But that's only nitpicking.

#2 - Nice detail and excellent exposure but I'm uncomfortable with the distance. Felt it could've either been closer or pulled farther back.

#3 - Now that's interesting.

#4 & #5 - Sorry, the wood isn't working for me.

#6 - A little too close. Good detail but subject-wise it's not all that interesting.

#7 - Love the perspective, almost like it's glowing. Push it away a tad from center and you have a winner.

#8 - Very clean.

Great set!
