+Myriam Joire all i can say about hdr is that its a fusion of more than one image. With exposure tweaked. My point is hdr results in softer images than a straight non hdr single exposure. If you are steady the results will be better and best if taken on a tripod. I can post some comparisons if you want where the non hdr is sharper. Auto hdr is best left off unless you know what you want and are steady when taking the photo.

The way around this is shoot in raw which means one exposure and tweak the colours as you like. Enough headroom with better results.

America, fuck yeah :) Let's celebrate today's ruling, but let's not forget this is just the beginning! There's still no rights for trans people in most states...

+Eric Taney I never thought about that.

+Alison Chaiken​ I believe they did, I seem to remember seeing something about that on the news.

+Mr covert​ We'll all get there...eventually. It takes a long time for old ideals to die.

If you were going for light trails then 1 s is what you want. About f1.8 and dof. The 'hwa lei' red sign on the right is sharp. This means your focus is already at infinity (anything beyond 2m). So I dont understand why as we go to the left of the frame things get littlle blurry. Focus at infinity means all things in the distance are sharp. Even the parked cars on your side of the road are good. i can read the license plate.

Is it a good shot ? Ofc. pls post more as they are inspiring :)

I can say if you can pull this off that you myriam do not even need ois. I would not be surprised if you could pull off a steady 1/2 or 1s handheld on a device that has no ois. i'm thinking xperia, iphone 6 ( with manual camera) or even m9. Thing with m9 is it has this EIS. Which you cannot disable. And it can mess with slow exposure photos. So shooting raw on the m9 is the only way to disable eis :(

Story
Introduction

Myriam Joire (tnkgrl) was born wearing combat boots and holding a keyboard; moments later she picked up a soldering iron. She's been stomping, typing and hacking ever since. After spending years being a code-monkey in the video game industry, she joined Engadget as Senior Mobile Editor and later Pebble as Chief Evangelist. Today she advises startups and founders on their media and product strategy, and freelances as a tech journalist for TWiT and other major publications. She's based in San Francisco.
