They're a little too dark. Some of the buildings, for instance, need a little more edge to them. Photos in dim light can be a real hassle--believe me, I know--and can often be nicely enhanced in your photo editor. Give it a try...on a copy of the original.

I like these photos. Even though you may be trying to focus on the sunset or city lights, the closer buildings are a little dark.

As B said, try doing some lite editing in an editor.

Again, great photos.

On the sunset I agree that it may be a bit dark. I was trying to get what I felt was the most natural looking sky. I wanted the sky to keep its colour and straight from the camera, I think this one did the sky the most justice to my eye but I did realise that the rest of the shot suffered. I actually have about seven shots of it where I experimented with the settings of my camera (the joys of digital!!)

The twilight is what I wanted it to be. This is what I was looking for. I love this picture quite a bit, can't tell you why, but I just do :roll:

Thanks for the comments guys. much appreciated. The sunset I will work on and repost.

I have some other shots that I will post tommorrow also of around the same time and spot as the sunset.

Again I will post them as from the camera, unmodified.

Thanks again

Maybe if I fiddle a bit in photshop I should be able to do some good to the sunset, but I am an ignorant novice as to the powers of photshop.

I will see what I can do and start the learning process of photshop.

Decided to add it now..........



This is mainly of a varying orange sky. It is taken on the same day and from the same spot as the sunset. I just used some zoom (including digital to get it. I thought including the ferry in the Pic was a cool idea, even if it was miniscule and fuzzy!!

Oh and also unedited from the camera.

Duane,

The second shot from your original pair was a notch above the first because you could see the silhouette of the boats etc. but in the first the silhouettes were indiscriminate landscape nohing to really grab your attention.

Your third shot with the brilliant sky, has some beautiful colors but personally I find the fuzziness a bit distracting.
