How the picture at Petra by Night  was clicked: It was dark and only light was the one coming from candles in the brown paper bags. I had a small Gorilla Pad that I kept stable on a table top and sat in a corner to avoid all the people watching the show, hence you see a side view of the Treasury or Al Khazneh .

Here is the exif data for the picture

Camera: Camera: Nikon D 7000,

Lens: Nikkor 18-105 f 3.5-5.6 VR Lens

Aperture: F /18 (ideally I should have used around F /12-16 but then I was getting too bright as I wanted a real long exposure)

Shutter Speed: 30 Seconds, hence the need for the tripod / gorilla pod

ISO – 400 (Now after looking at picture I would have used ISO 200 to get less grain as it is a long exposure shot)

Focal Length: 18 mm

Metering: Matrix

The image was processed using Adobe Lightroom  4. 3
