The following images were taken with a Nikon D5100 equipped with the Nikkor DX 18-55mm VR kit lens. The D5100 was set to its best quality Large Fine JPEG mode. White Balance and Active D-Lighting were set to their default Auto modes, while noise reduction was also left at the defaults. Vibration Reduction was enabled for all these handheld images.

The individual exposure mode, file sizes, shutter speeds, aperture, ISO and lens focal length are listed for each image.
