Some nights shots

Prior to my run in-with the law

No wonder traffic is such a mess downtown!


My first attempt at HDR (High Dynamic Range):


Grayscale seems fitting here:


Anyone missing a bike?


I shot all in RAW last night and spent some time this morning learning how to color correct and adjust exposure with Photoshop. The 'cool' blue Nikon really messed up that green traffic light, I had to jack up the green to make it look somewhat correct.

Wow, thanks for the compliments. To be honest I wasn't really happy with any of the photos from the last night, especially after getting hosed on parking and then the whole cop thing. That traffic light took about 20 tries to get the timing right

Trees are difficult under long exposures because of their never stopping leaves that move under the slightest breeze, but somehow you pulled it off with number 2.

Nice work.

I think I like #4 the best. #3 is really good too but I think it could benefit from a crop to take out the corner of the building and the light on the right edge of the photo. Great shots!
