Semaphore, South Australia - we went down for a Sunset but it was too cloudy. So I grabbed this.

Nice Work Kym.
The lamp lights look spectacular but the backlit angle really looks great.
Which lens did you use for this ?

Very nice Kym.
You picked a good nicely-lit spot for a cool urban night time capture.

Very cool shot. I wonder, do you use a filter for protection on the lens? I ask because I often get ghosting at night if I leave on my filter and shoot into the light.

No I don't use any filters unless I need too (eg CPL).

I really like the lights in this, nice shot. The backlighting on the top of the clock/statue is good too.

I like those smooth trails from the car lights and the foreground clock looks almost omnious due to it being so much darker
