One of my favourite views, Dublin at night coming into land at Dublin airport. I took this last week on what will be hopefully be my last work related flight for a few months. I have tried several times to get this shot, this is the sharpest so far. The combination of coming in from the south and waiting until we got fairly low allowed me to fill the frame with the lights. Being a bit lower than previous attempts also allowed slightly more light in to the camera I think.

Settings  :  ISO 1600, 50mm, F2.0, 1/60sec. I did need to use noise reduction in lightroom to adjust for the ISO 1600.
