Default Went to downtown last night...

Went to downtown last night. It was freezing cold, around 36F with wind chill down below freezing. I only spent an hour there and decided to go for some hot soup afterward. It was too cold for me to even swap lenses, so all shots were with 50-200mm

these look excellent jacob. great exposures, good detail. #1,3,4 really caught my eye, nice and sharp, straight horizontals and verticals.

Very nice series. The last two is really nice with the moon in the background.

I like the mix of colours, these are very nice night shots. For me the 3rd is my favourite, the lights from the building are vivid and nice. Good work

Thanks for all the compliments. I'm still working on my skills to improve the final output quality.

Yes, I had the B+W UV filter on. I should have taken it off but I forgot

No reason to take it off. It's a general-purpose filter.

Actually it would have prevented the ghosting in the 4th shot if the filter was taken off. The reflection of the moon could have been avoided.
