It’s all mine!
The four best frames out of approximately 100 taken tonight on my first session with my Pentax and tripod. Of course I wanted to tackle the most difficult photography first, low light conditions (one of the main reasons I decided to dump almost half a months salary into a little black box).
I don’t think National Geographic will be calling anytime soon.

The worst frame of the night. In my own defense, it was one of the first shots I made with my new piece, and I still hadn’t hadn’t figured out the proper aperture/shutter speed combinations, nor how the automatic modes would perform under low light conditions. Unfortunately, I think the couple believed they had stumbled across some hardcore photographer and wanted me to email them the image.
The first two images were taken in manual mode using a tripod, with the other two using automatic night settings, while the last monstrosity was taken in manual without a tripod (moronic).
