Photographer's Note

This shot, like my previous one, relates to the visit of Queen Victoria,the luxury cruise ship. Here the moon has risen and people are gathering to farewell the ship and anticipating a spectacular fireworks display. I have another shot which is taken somewhat later and shows the pier packed with people, right up to the beach and all along the esplanade.
The photo was very difficult to photograph because even when I put the camera on the handrail for support, the people walking along shook the boards and the vibrations traveled through me to the camera. I gave up trying to find a steady support and relied on a steady hand instead. I am quite happy with the result, considering the ISO reading of 800 and exposure time of 1/6.I brightened the image, decreased noise and added a little contrast.
P.S. The pier is Lagoon Pier, a popular place to fish from. It was a strange experience being there since most of the fellows fishing that night were Turks.Somehow it reminded me of Galata Bridge in Istanbul where in the evening one sees many people fishing.In this photo the people are looking towards Station Pier and QV.
