Also just for my learning curve, why were you shooting at ISO 400 Anil ji?

The ISO doesn't really matter on a full frame (in most of the pics) Jasii unless you've pushed it way too high - I've been leaving my D700 at ISO 800 to get faster shutter speeds for macro's / flowers etc as well as for pics with long lenses - the photos look the same as shots taken at ISO 100 with a crop sensor.

Hi,

Nice try  :like: :like:
Follow the suggestions suggested by others, specially take more shots per subject and also see the pics of others and you are good to go for better shots.

I think so too, Somnath.

And improving that will translate into a smaller aperture and longer exposure time, which in turn will probably drive the need for some additional stabilizing influence.

The ISO doesn't really matter on a full frame (in most of the pics) Jasii unless you've pushed it way too high - I've been leaving my D700 at ISO 800 to get faster shutter speeds for macro's / flowers etc as well as for pics with long lenses - the photos look the same as shots taken at ISO 100 with a crop sensor.
It is amazing, Ayaz, how that we can use ISO 800 today like we used ASA 64 a generation ago. 

One of the nicest surprises when I got my D700 five years ago was that with a 50mm f1.4 I could shoot darn near anything in any light bright enough to see, and get an exposure that was at least somewhat useful.  Nowadays I leave mine at ISO 800 a lot too.  The resulting faster shutter speed lends a bit of additional "stabilizing" quality to my old, all-mechanical glass.  But at 1600 and 3200 I can expect some "grain-like effects" that remind me of the "high speed" ASA 400 and ASA 800 films we shot back in the 70s and 80s.

Some say that those of us who like to talk about cameras should instead go and take pictures. I say we should go and also take pictures.
