Hi Peter,

The silhouettes do seem to have come out well, however iam not too sure about the composition for me due to its brightness the first element to draw the eye is strucutre (?) towards the top with the bright lights, after that its the boat and then incidentally the silhouettes, i think the idea is good though but it looks like this was taken from a high viewpoint ? Maybe an eye level point of view or even a lower one would move the silhouettes upwards in the frame with the rest of the scene forming a good backdrop for them.

Also i think you could have used a narrower aperture, something on the lines of f/9-13 to get the star effect on the lights in the shot which would IMHO boost the impact of the shot..Smile

Hope this helps Smile

PS: - Also done a quick mod to offer as an alternative

I don't mind what you have done here compositionally at all, but I assume at ISO800 you have hand held. The problem is that nothing is sharp due to camera movement. You must use some kind of support for this kind of image - preferably a tripod, but a street seat back, wall top, anything to hold the camera still.

You cannot hold a camera still at 1/6 second - you have actually done fairly well.
