Definitely turned out much better tonight!
and an HDR attempt
Night and day difference (no pun intended).
What'd you do differently?
I like the pictures. The street lights (that are close) are a bit distracting though.
took off the UV filter
shot at 100 ISO instead of 400 ISO (i knew that already, i just had it on 400 ISO by accident )
I did my best to work around them, they are in pretty gay locations for taking pictures
this is reason #1 I refuse to use a UV filter on any of my lenses.
I like the comp. of the first one and the HDR the best (same shot, right?)
can't decide which version I like better though... For print, prolly the hdr...
yes the first and last are the same - I didn't love the HDR, but i figured they are always fun to do.
damn, good job.
though the HDR one would only be cool if you're on acid
Thats wanting me to go find a good spot in Houston to do the same thing.
do eet, big cities ftw! not everyone can step outside and have such amazing views!! this was 1.5 miles away from where i live, and i never knew about it until yesterday. best view in Atlanta!!!!
Way better than the first try. I'm not diggin the yellow tint of the light coming from the street lights though
I'm also not a fan of the car light trails, but that's just me. where could you go to just get the cityscape without the freeway and shit?
I'd have to look around some more.
I think it would look better with more traffic, it was a pretty dead night. I'll have to try it again on a weeknight, maybe the night of a braves game or something.
thanks for the comments
Yeah, that would work better.
another HDR (still practicing and learning the hdr program, any tips from anyone?)
also, make sure you have a sturdy tripod, use mirror lock up, dont use f22.
and remove your neckstrap if there is any wind
if you dont have a remote set a delay on the shutter too.
because it will hurt your sharpness, require even longer exposure times (potentially more noise or chance of something bumping the camera) and make the lights look like shit.
You get crazy diffraction with an aperture that small.
