First Attempt at a Nighttime Cityscape
Posted By: ThunderVamp9, 04-14-2008, 08:47 PM

I've wanted to try this type of shot for a long time, and had a good opportunity to do so this weekend. It took a couple tries to get what I felt was the right exposure time. There was some wind, which caused an interesting effect on the water as I was shooting from a small cove that offered a little shelter from the wind. This resulted in the visible difference between the water in the bay and the water in the cove. As a huge fan of B&W, I felt the conversion was a better end result.




Camera: K100D
13 Second Exposure
ISO200
35mm Focal Length
f4.5

I like this shot, I like the two textures in the water and also two in the sky... I would like to see it bigger, I think it would print nice in a large size.

Have you printed it yet?

I like it as well but if mine I would crop out some of the open space on top. Actually I would crop a lot off the top. As I scroll up and down looking at the shot I think it would be better with just a inch or so above the buildings. Just my thoughts. Nice work on the conversion.

Thank you. I haven't printed it yet, but plan on doing it this weekend.

I thought of that when I was framing the shot, but decided that I wanted to get both the clouds and the clear sky with stars in the shot, and that wasn't possible if I cropped out most of the top.
