Although this is personal opinion, I am wondering which people prefer when viewing pictures of holiday lights. Both were taken with a Fuji F10 handheld at ISO1600.

Picture one is lighter

it looks washed out. meaning you might have overexposed it.
next time try bracketing down.

Berto, you think both are overexposed?

Constrastly, peripatipic and Hards think it should be brighter, correct?

So I guess it is personal preference, some like it lighter, others darker. Or should I be doing something different? Thanks.

i would like to see details in the home.. so maybe try shooting just after dark so you still have some ambiant light, yet the christmas lights are on as well.. just seeing the lights is not appealing for me..

I agree with what's been said so far. I wanted to see more details in the house, not just the lights.

if i were you i probably take near shot so that you can get more house detailsand shoot it in three diff partof the house then stich it. i think it is more good look in pano. as i can see your too far to yor subject to be in able covered the whole area... technicaly you can do stitching, but dont forget to use try pad... if your using the camera shown in your avatar i guest that you wont able get details like dslr do. due to limit of F and shutter speed settings. but of course still you will be able toget more details contrary to that post photo. spend onother night but this time do it in stiching... anyhow this is just my opinion but i will be glad if you post it again in panoramic view. other thing i suggest dont used high iso settingspecially in still object

Some of the best ‘night scenes' I saw were shot during dusk/dawn when there is enough ambient light to perk up the sky

dunnu if this will work???your the profesional i'm just newbie
