Default EOS 300D - Night Photography

Two Words :

Freaking Incredible!
The fact that it picked up the lighting in the air behind the building and trees behind the buildings is amazing to me.

30sec Exposure
ISO 100
F3.5
18-55Kit Lens

Nice shot. It seems that you lens has a distortion problem. Or was this the actual view of the building ? Just curious!

"never question a mans lens" he he...I can see that it's a crop. It just seemed funny the way the building was tilting towards the middle. But hey....forget it!

Both yes and no! With a shutter speed of 30sec. this is something most cameras are cabable of. This is also the reason why the door lights and the moon is overexposed. You should also consider adjusting the whitebalance a slight bit to overcome the orange cast and this way get the real green colors of the bushes and a more deep blue sky. This was friendly meant as a help to you - please don't feel hurt.

Klaus Not hurt or upset at all I welcome any pointres to improve my photo's. In this case the desired effect was to over exppose the moon .. I wanted to get the hazy, eeire feeling it had and to highlight the halo of moisture surrounding it

With Some Color Correction... And these are 2 actual buildings that are offset by about 8 feet in depth from one another thats why they seem to "collapse" 1/3 way in from left to right .

Oh, nice edit. The colors seems much more natural, but this hits the nail, because natural doesn't have to mean "better". Surely you agree
