Thanks, Willie, I will take note of your suggestions. In hindsight I may have been better with f/4 and bumping up the ISO but, as you point out, it is acceptable. The polariser worked a dream; without it the bonnet looked washed out.
Thanks, Paul, appreciate the positive comments. For V1 I had record shot in mind (possible camera club entry) so I didn't want any wide angle distortion and flashes were not used.
Assuming you had a tripod I would go with manual and try an aperture of f/11 or f/16. Your wide aperture of f/3.5 has resulted in the street lights appearing as blobs but a smaller aperture would give nice starbursts. The resultant long exposure would smooth out the ripples in the water giving better reflections.
Thanks for the mod and feedback, Moira. I started with a brighter version than this, then I went dark and moody and finally ended up with this one somewhere inbetween. Brighter definitely sounds better for the poster so I think I will follow your advice there.
Hi Paul, that's a great story of how you got into photography. I am being asked by our company to photograph all our sites in Yorkshire and hopefully I can expand on this. Sadly I couldn't get any further back as the tank I was stood completely blocks the view. I was struggling to fit everything in even at 10mm.
