    Hi. I went yesterday for a day and then night trip through my city to photograph architecture. Those are my first architecture shots, so I know they are far from perfect and that's why I ask for c&c. That said, here are the photos with settings:

    City Hall:

  2. nice series
    i like a lot of them

    why were you shooting at f/19?
    there is no reason for that

    shoot at f/8.... maybe f/11
    so that you won't need as long of a shutter time

    i would also consider post processing some of these to bring out more details from the shadows
    since you shot at ISO 100... that should be very possible

    thanks for sharing these with us

    I thought that if I shot with closed aperture then all of the building will be in focus. But I guess that you are right, it was closed too much. Thanks for advice :)  And about PP to bring details from shadows - I like the way that light is playing with the buildings, but maybe a little PP would be good. Again, maybe next time :)
