Greetings, Stan. I mainly shoot landscapes mostly within a few hours of sunrise and sunset. So I'm often operating in low light conditions. I shot the image below about a week ago at sunrise with the D5000 and af-s 35mm at f/1.8, 1/125s and ISO 200. There was a very light haze in the air but nothing like what shows up in the photo. This is uncropped and not processed in any way and converted to jpeg from the RAW file.
