  1. it was a little overcast that night but i think it turned out pretty good for a night shot. any help to improve would be great, im still learning.

    i took a night shot too where the street lamps were too bright...while everything else looked great. does anyone know how to compensate for that? is it using a higher aperture or something else?

    i like the shot though...i'm a fan of the camera positioned right next to the railing

    Spoony, nice shot. I guess we're neighbors. I know the spot. Are you a tourist or a resident?
     
  9. great shot
    the street lights DO overpower this images a bit... but, THAT can make a "statement," as well

    please show us a larger version, if you have one online

    try and compose them out of frame?otherwise their going to blow out the channel no matter.you'd have to under expose by just too much t keep from blowing those highlites.
