Photograph Information Photographer's Comments
Challenge: Late Night (Basic Editing III)
Camera: Nikon Coolpix 5700
Location: Vredehoek, Cape Town
Date: May 3, 2005
Aperture: 4.5
ISO: 100
Shutter: 4 seconds
Galleries: Cityscape
Date Uploaded: May 3, 2005

My first attempt at anything like this, and I'm not too unhappy with how it came off considering I was pushed for time and wielding a foreign camera (borrowed a Nikon Coolpix 5700).

USM, Curves, Brightness/Contrast and Saturation tweaked ever so slightly. The little dots are because of some technical issue with the cam, which is unfortunate.

I wish I had more time for this challenge! There're plenty of far cooler things to shoot in Cape Town at night but due to all sorts of silly things tonight was my last and only night free.

Hope this doesn't do too badly-
Alex

Wonderful. Now I wish I had got off my butt and taken some pictures of Cape Town at night.

Quite a skyline, but needs to be sharpened to really do it justice.

Nice crisp focus. The only "gripe" I have is that the building which has a blue top really stands out for me, and I'd like to see that adjusted a little farther to the left to follow the 1/3 rule a bit better. But it really doesn't detract from the photo either. Great job capturing the lighting.

How Beautiful! It's so sharp and clear! I love how you can even see some little stars twinkling.

Lots of different colors to hold your interest. Might make a good jigsaw puzzle.

Looks more early evening than late night. Lots of lights on for being late.

Lots of pretty colors, but rather boring. Have seen this type of image a million times.
