Beautiful image thanks for sharing Colin
Excellent image - great work indeed !
You have the basis for a good image here Fran it just needs a bit of tweeking. I've uploaded a mod in which I've:
Tweeked the perspective to make the towers vertical
Added a bit of contrast and increased the saturation
Cropped a bit off the left hand side
It's easy when somebody else goes to all the effort of taking the shot!!!!!
Hope you like my adjustments
Thanks Phil - I'm usually paranoid about the horizon being level and didn't even spot this. It seems obvious now!
Like the mod.
Obivously I meant 'crop from the right hand side' - I get confused sometimes
Liking this - better that its been straightened !
I have a similar image to this - it was a 92 second exposure and is one of my personal favourites.
hello, its a great viewpoint, my son lived quite close by a few years ago and i passed by regularly. you made a good attempt here at the time exposure, and the colours are quite nice.
im not sure why you used a nd grad as most of the image is sky and the tones probably didnt need balancing, and for the length of exposure you could have stopped down even further if you wanted the length of time. not using them would have given a more open exposure i feel and the sky colour may have been brighter. using filters always degrades quality slightly and i think its best to use them only when you have to.
i do like the effect of the lights with the lovely starbursts and the streaking below on the water is great.
its a shame about the horizon being off but that can be fixed and its better for it IMO.
Its a nice shot and all it needs are a couple of tweaks
as said before youve got the basis for a good image here, unfortunatly there are a few improvements that need to be made. Firstly the photo is under exposed, i think you really needed to go for 30 seconds or longer and adjust the aperture to get a decent exposure without blowing the lights. Reall like the viewpoint with the lights dissapearing into the distance, just need to be a bit more careful with the camera settings.
Ive up loaded a mod to show what it could have been like, this is only my view of what i would have liked to have achieved but may give a better view.
-first the perspective needed sorting out to make the bridge straight and horizon level
-upped the exposure time by 2 stops (if done in camera shutter speed would have been around 80 seconds..), to equal the values in the histogram
-i then added some extra space top bottom and right to put the bridge more into the middle of the shot so it didnt feel so cramped
-reduced saturation a little as the colours were a bit strong.
