my second try at night photography
Lens: 70mm Camera: pentax k7 ISO: 100 Shutter Speed: >6s Aperture: F6.7 

I decided to go for a walk and snap a couple photos while the family was out shopping.

A very difficult exposure.
The unbalanced light from the point sources against the pitch black sky make the lighting in this image hard to make art out of. As is typical with these conditions, this image lacks contrast and texture.
Nevertheless, you've done well.
Good work with this one.

Is it just me or is the horizon tilted? I find that distracting, a quick correction in post-processing would help.

I think you could've cropped out a lot of what was on the right and ended up with a better picture.

Otherwise, it's tough to get these kinds of shots right, so I like the way it turned out as far as exposure goes.
