The Roof of the Mezqitta

In Spain last week and saw this unbelievable mosque in Cordoba. Built by the Moors about year 1000-1100 and then added on as a church starting 400 years later when the Moors were driven from Spain. I saw incredible delicate architecture with great light coming in. So what to do when it is dark, you don't have a tripod or DSLR and you want your images to be sharp. One set the ISO to 800, 2) find a firm surface to steady the camera, in this case- a rail and 3) set the camera to take 3 bracketed exposures 1/3 stop apart. So, steady the camera, compose and depress the shutter. The first image will likely be blurry from camera shake with depressing the shutter. But.......the next two will be sharp as the camera takes these shots without shutter depression-shake. An alternative is to use the self timer button set at 2 seconds and still bracket. Taken with a Panasonic Lumix LX5. Jeff
