Arab Street, Night

When I first saw this scene I had my Nikon V1 with me. The combination of having to zoom in and the low light, was beyond the V1. The next time I was here, I made sure to bring my D600.

Had to stop down to f8 to get decent depth of field, pushed ISO to 6400 and even then had to use a slow shutter speed of 1/15 seconds. Just not enough light. Managed to support my hands on a parapet, which was enough.

Took quite a few shots. The cars don't always line up nicely. It's the multiple orderly rows that make the photo interesting - the roofs, walls, parked cars on the left, cars with red taillights stopped at the traffic lights, parked cars on the right.
