Default Night time Castle

This is believe it or not my first night time shot with my G3! I really like the colours but probably could inprove on it? I'd be interested at your thoughts on it.

Thank you.

Martin,
Quite good for your first attempt. My first attempt was pretty bad. But then again I didn't have the flexibility of a G3.
I was surprised that the lighting on the castle was so even. They must use an impressive array of lights.

My only picky comment was that the roof looked a bit odd and that may have more to do with the ambient light rather than the technical quality of the shot.

Aloha.

Good first effort. Where is the castle?

Martin - this is a very nice shot. Very well composed and lovely colours. Nice job!

The only thing is the appearing noise in the sky and the lack of details on the castle. Some structure would have been nice.

Well done - I like it!

Klaus: I think the noise in the sky came from having to set the camera to ISO100 ...it was a handheld shot. I'm not sure if there is a problem with the roof. This is how it looks on the non-processed image.

Steve: The castle is in Edinburgh my home city. Here is a photo I took of the castle by day on the same day...

Well I thought is was some PS noise from darkening the sky.

I like the other shot better. Really good!

Martin, I was there twenty years ago and you have a truly beautiful city. I wish I had taken the time to take some shots in Old Town Edinburgh.
