Walferdange by night!

By Wilco54
Hi, following a really good article I read recently have been trying a few night shots with deliberate high ISO and then attempting to emulate a lith style of print! I would welcome any comments, suggestions, critiques etc!

My first advice would be to use a tripod!
Lith pictures tend to be printed in a more ethereal way - the shadows don't block up so much and the highlights tend to be dreamy and soft. You don't usually get textureless whites, whereas here, the highlights are blown. It looks like you need to go further with the technique on this pic, as it doesn't reall say "lith" to me, just "unsharp night shot".

Nick, many thanks! I wholly agree about a tripod but the point of these was hand held and high ISO! I am not convinced either! This one was a struggle because of the highlights. I will keep moving! Thansk again!

A really good attempt, but as Nick so kindly pointed out, a lot of reading up, and a hell of a lot of practice needed. But never give up.

Hi, I agree on what has been said, but I put your image into Photoshop copied the background layer - layers panel - hue/saturation - -62 on saturation - + 5 on lightness. New layer and painted the building on the left in black as this did not fit in with the shot. I also cropped the image from the right. Hope you like it.

Many thanks for all the comments and the PS tutorial - I like the modified version. Now, to find more reading up to do!
