I'm not exactly sure I understand what you mean by time lapse.*Did you use an extremely long shutter time, or did you mount on a tripod, and take photos of the same subject at different times of day, and then layer them over one another?Either way, cool

I think it was the shutter time which was 4 seconds. What do you call that when you do that? I thought the effect was cool with the water.

that is called long exposure. time lapse is not supported in this camera. it means the camera takes one picture, waits a while, takes another, waits a while, takes another, like that. and then it layers them together:arrow:

Actually I used the back of a trailer that was just sitting there in the parking lot...so I used an impropto tripod.

Any tips you may have on this type of photography?

The usual advice for night photos with lights in the scene is to use a smaller aperture. Of course that lenghthens the exposure, but worth a try.

Very nice. I like the "dreamy soft" effect you achieved and the colors and lighting are great.

It's great. Really nice. Well done - especially for seeing the well-placed trailer and what it could do for you!

Isn't it wonderful that all over cities there are these flat surfaces specially put there for putting your camera on.

Church interiors haveflat ledgestoo - but not enough of them.
