Hi folks,

I've done this with EF-S 18-55mm, ISO 100, F5.6 and 10s shutter speed.

What's your opinion about it, could I have improved something?

This was my first night shot and I had to play around a lot until I got a satisfying result.

Regards,

Fisheye

I really do think its a very decent first night shot... but the bright spot in the lower left pulls my eye to it and really won't let go. Maybe a bit of bringing it down in photoshop would help. I love night photography, and trust me, a simple little light can become a burning sun very quickly. Overall though, very nice!

I like the edit gwei. Cuts out some of that dark space that had nothing to add to the picture.

The editing job was an improvment over the bright light, however, when a clone stamp is used, the pattern of the rocks needs to be changed so it isnt repeated 3 times. Try cloning individual rocks in different places. Repeating patterns in places that should be random tend to catch your eye. Just my humble opinion...

thehippo:
You are absolutely right. It was a quick edit. It shouldn't be difficult to eliminate the repeated patterns.

I have send you a messge with details of what I did as I am afraid this forum is not an appropriate place for discussing eidting staff. Bear in mind there should be different ways to improve the pic.

Nice pic for your 1st time,but I agree with the idea of removing the extra space.I also went the PS route with almost no cloning,none on the rocks.Hope this is ok.
