Tripod! That is the only critique I will offer.
Switching from ISO 200 to ISO 1600 would have dropped your shutter speed from 0.6s to a barely-possible-with-IS 1/12s.
Tripod for sure.
ISO1600 would be noise central tbh. long exposure hand held are not beyond the realms of possibility, I took this shot at 1/10th hand held... With no IS.
Just takes some practice
Bottom line, as said, tripod can't be beaten.
I was not disagreeing with the tripod suggestion, but that was already posted, so I thought to add a second option that might help.
thanks for the comments.
i had the tripod with me, but chose not to use it. the guy fishing in the photo was drunk. Kinda makes me feel a bit drunk too when i look at it
Don't know if you can call this photography :/
Er... well i took it with a camera... does that count? :scratch:
It's too bad you didn't use the tripod, it could have been a really nice shot. I'm a bit timid about using mine, but after a few successful night shoots, I am getting over it!
My little sister could take a better photo than this, nuff said, sorry.
Apart from this comment being totally un-called for... John is a superb photographer, look at his previous posts... this image is different for him... but doesn't deserve your patronizing tone.
I can see where it would've been weird to randomly set up a tripod and start taking pics of someone, especially if that person is drunk. Oh well... I think it's clear at this point what you could've done to fix that shot.
Looking at the shot though, I'm not sure the fisherman needs to be there for it to be a good image. Might be worth a reshoot sometime with the tripod. Besides if you really want the fisherman shot but don't want to shoot a stranger, set up the tripod, grab a pole and use a remote to trip the shutter.
