Palace of Fine Arts - 3 night shots
Posted By: xs400, 01-16-2008, 11:11 AM

The Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco. The Palace of Fine Arts was originally built for the 1915 Panama-Pacific Exposition. I'm still trying to develop my skills at night photography and have wanted to take some night shots here for some time. K100D and DA 16-45.

I like all 3 of them, the composition of the 1st i good and nice colours. Not quite sharp though, but as i said in different thread thats a personal thing.

Beutiful lighting, great captures. Seems like jpeg compression kicked in on an otherwise perfect demonstration of night photography. Well done.

These were all shot in RAW with exposures of 8-10 sec. So there could definately be some problems with jpeg compression. Also, I have a pretty cheap tripod, it was a little windy, and there could have been some movement during the exposure.

Maybe I should try some additional sharpening?
