I Clicked it Up a Notch - September

It was very hard to pick a favorite photo of the month this month, but since this one is my current desktop background and I have yet to tire of it I decided this would be the one :o). You can read more about my journey to capture and edit this shot here and here. Last month that was also one of the reasons I chose the photo that I did. I chose my August photo because I had shot it on full manual as well, which I did for this one too. I feel like I have been on such a journey shooting manual and that my ability to capture this night shot showcases that I have become more comfortable taking chances and tackling new situations with my camera. I can't wait to see what next month brings!

Settings: ISO 400, 74mm, ss3.2, f/6.3 (full manual on tripod)
