It was a wonderful trip and for late October, the weather wasn't bad. Only rained all day once.

Well....here's a couple of the Abbey in Bath. Note, all my low light photography is done at high ISO and hand held so not the sharpest. I find things to lean on, hold my breath, etc. Some do come out presentable.
Both of these were taken with the D70 with Sigma lens and at ISO 1600. See other data below each image.
Lens at 28mm, 1/20, f3.8
Lens at 34mm, 1/60, f4.5

Low lighting photography is our favorite flavor. I'll tell you, they look great. No tripod? ISO 1600 here I come! I have always hung around the ISO 100 on my Kodak DC4800 (with a tripod of course!), but I think the new D70 will do great at higher ISO settings. Thank you again!
PS love the flying buttresses (spelling?) :flower:

I believe you got the spelling correct. I added the shooting data for you. Remember these are resized images. The original size is 3008x2000. I do not use Long Exposure NR.
Yes, I've found the D70 high ISO very sharpe.

The Britsh Museum allows photography in all their collections as long as you don't use a flash. Oh, boy, more high ISO and low shutter speeds here I come! Although the lighting gave working shutter speeds in the 1/30th to 1/60th range at ISO 800 to 1600. Sometimes you get a nice effect (see below as my daughter points out Socrates to me.) All pics are 100% crops.
Greek Vase (think Disney's Hercules movie here ;) )

They look great. I love not using a flash, so much more natural looking.
