I am very lucky to have a talented photographer husband so he walked me through some of the settings but at the end of the day it was me that took the shot (courtesy of a tripod and the remote control!)
F 5.6, 1/6, ISO 400,
This image was taken late on in the evening so I opted for monochrome as it is the most forgiving re "camera noise". The aperture was the lowest that this lens would go but Dave has ordered a converter for one of his old lenses that should enable the aperture to drop to 1.8 when necessary.
Thanks Sarah for lifting my spirits and challenging me to actually pick up the camera and play with the settings.
