Quite a tricky photo. The boat was slowly moving, so I couldn´t use excessively long exposures. The problem was that there was not much ambient light, so I would have to use exposures >10seconds to properly expose the image. As this was not an option (because the boat would be totally blurry), I had to increase the ISO to 400. With my pentax K10d this would be a total no-no, due to extreme noise, but it worked very nicely with the Sony a55 and the Adobe Camera RAW 6.3 amazing noise reduction algorithm.
Still, the boat was a bit blurry, which I tried to correct with selective unsharp masking in the boat area.
