Hudson Landscape with a Tripod

I know it can be geeky whipping out the tripod, but the results are so amazing when camera shake is eliminated. Any time I go handhold, I find I always need more shutter speed than I think I need. My hands tend to be at least shakier than the next guy.

So on this journey along the Hudson I decided to take my Oben tripod which worked very well. I chose the aperture of F9 because I believe that is the sweet spot for this particular lens.

    Very sweet!

    And with a tripod, we're usually more generous with exposure because we don't try to fool ourselves and cheat towards a faster shutter speed. And we have enough depth of field, because we don't try to cheat towards a too-wide aperture (of that faster shutter speed.)
