    Default Bridge

    Does this setting work for you?

    Would suggest you do a writeup for your shot on what you are trying to achieve etc.

    good exposure, and i like how the traffic trails are caught midway.

    the main problem here is that there is too much space at the top, the picture feels very unbalanced; the solution is to crop, i found that a 16:9 crop ratio worked here



    on another note, if you shot in raw, or do a reshoot, try fluorescent/tungsten wb; generally night photos look better cooler, especially when it comes to having manmade structures in it

    on another note; i just realised that the edge of the building closest to the frame is not straight, probably due to distortion and/or vertical perspective problems. you might want to correct that before you crop

    nicely taken shot, but too much negative space in the sky... perhaps you should crop it as suggested by night86mare... he's right, a wide screen crop would make this a much cleaner picture...

    Thanks newlife, crimsonseas, night86mare & Yapster for the comments... below is the crop version with the color balance slightly adjusted.

    yes, i like this version.

    you can also consider adjusting the curves for more contrast..

    Hi deTour,

    Nice Job!
    I think the photo will be even more attractive if you can find a busier cross junction.
    Also, I will attempt to shoot abit lower to show more of the cross junction, so as to see the traffic on both sides.
    But just too unfortunate that I spotted some trees are blocking that side of the view.
    Thus location selection is equally important..

    haha. i think it is. the road up leads to sr central =D and down leads to my previous house. =D

    like what yongsak said. it'd be nicer if there's more cars in it. but from exprience. there ain't much cars during the night. =x

    I noticed your exposure is 8sec. If you up your F-stop to, let's say, F/20 or so you can get a longer exposure. Hence, might capture more cars.

    Lens may suffer frm diffraction(correct me if i am wrong) at smaller f no. causing the whole pic to become soft... use it if ur lens permit...

    This one taken at F/22 20sec... not too bad... i guess can capture more cars... but the lamp post light trails i find a bit distracting and like what repulsivity has mentioned, that road is very quiet at that hour.... i'm lucky to capture with 3 lanes occupied..

    if u wan to test the effects, u can take the same scene using different f number one after the other...like i said, it depends on the lens also.. some control diffraction better then the other..
    anyway ur 2 pics are different already, so quite hard to tell... but ur 2nd pic seems darker and softer...
