For landscaping.

Higher apperture lower shutter speed. Specially at dusk or dawn. (tho 2:37 pm is not near dusk). Tripod if you can use it.

And I would add doing to HDR :D That way you not only have three different stops for the same image, but a lot more detail in textures and color.

I like the sky and mountains :)

mmm colors. I like the contrast of flatland vs. flat buildings vs. gigantic f'ing mountains.

Konyan is right about the noise (grain as us film-shooters call it). Generally the lower the ISO the finer the grain. I would imagine that the CCD in your camera might have had a hard time catching full detail @ such a fast shutter speed. Next time try shooting with a smaller aperature - in this case you could have gotten away with f/11 @ 1/125 (for each stop you close down - down = bigger number - it will halve your shutterspeed. which is to say that from 5.2 to 8 you lose a 1/500 and change because it's a stop and a half, and then from 8 to 11 you lose half the shutterspeed again. I'm sure that doesn't make any sense at all).

Very nice. Rich colours (and it's Nikon??). I'm surprised to the amount of noise, since it was shot at ISO100. A well balanced exposure. You were lucky with the dark sky.

Thank you for the comment. I am trying to figure out the ISO myself. The initial photo was a bit faded-looking, so I adjusted the levels in PS, so maybe that added the otherwise-not-there noise? Anyways, thanks for noticing the details. :) :hug:
Oh - and the sky - it was dark, gray and gloomy everywhere else but there. . it probably lasted only a minute or two too. . . I was definitely lucky in that department.
