York Minster - night shot

A handheld / high iso shot taken whilst in York last week - should have been taken with tripod but didn't have it with me at the time

I agree the sky looks so blue is that natural of PP ? how long after sun set was that taken ? Very nice photo nice timing on the red light to freeze traffic!

Thanks for the comments...

The shot has had some noise reduction done to the sky, I own the Samsung GX10 which isn't the best at high iso (1100) - forgot about the straightening too - colours are 100% untouched - the shot was taken about 45 minutes after sunset, F8 & 1/10sec

To be honest this wasn't really a planned shot (hence no tripod), just thought I'd give it a go whilst wandering around York with relatives - think I will definitely have another attempt at this one though

Very sharp for hand held and at 1/10th sec Simon. Nice exposure. Been a while since I was last in York. One of my favourite cities.
