Ok it's night time and you're on the set at Universal Studios in Orlando. Where else do you go for a nice, cold chocolate milkshake and some fries but Mel's? Oh, "happy days!"
BTW, I'm proud of this one -- hand-held all the way.

EXTREMELY impressive VF - awesome clarity - you must have one steady hand. I love the colours, it reminds me of something out of one of those movies from the 80's.

Great night shot - all the more impressive for being hand held. Does you camera/lens have image stabilization?

Hand held? You are rock steady Mr VF!! Those neon lights against that night sky are just incredible. Great shot!!!! And oh Happy Days, indeed, one of my favourite shows growing up.

Ina from Krugersdorp, South Africa

Excellent capture of neon lights - and that with no tripod. Well done!
I have a 'scene setting' on my Nikon that I use now and then for neon lights, otherwise its fuzzy if I don't use a tripod.

where did my comment go? I know I said Mel's Place? really? how neat!!! but it's not there. Did you delete me? ;)

30 Jan 2008 11:53am

@Lorraine: Lorraine, I don't know if I deleted a comment from you, if I did it was totally accidental. Sorry my dear friend, I am always glad to get your comments. I am thinking maybe the winter chill left it brittle and frozen; maybe it just broke off...??? Mystery.
