    great idea and you framed the War Memorial too!!!

    The sky colour was fantastic but then the hotel and buildings were totally blacked out!

    Would waiting for the hotel to be well-lit, say around 8pm, at the expense of less gorious sky be a better compromise?

    or did you take this in the morning? Reason I asked is because the hotel looks sleepy to me.

    I like the color of the sky, the way it encompasses the buildings. Nice!

    However, there's slight distortion

    Very nice framing you have, the overall colours give a comfortable feel. The lamp posts are nicely darken and the light bulbs doesn't give that overexposed look. As mentioned, pity that the hotel was darken together. Hrm, how about take another shot and stack it up.

    And to be real choosy, might wanna crop a little to take out the person with that white t-shirt on the bottom left, the pathway.

    Nice framing..perhaps could try to get the short building on the right into the frame as well?

    Hello All...tks for the comments.

    jasphotography and Togu - I agree with you, if the buildings are lighted it would be better.

    Togu, what do u mean by 'stack up' ?

    ESPN/RedRum - tks for the suggestions, let me try it out next round.

    Nice use of the lamp posts as frames.

    Togu means to take another shot at the exact position but this time meter the buildings instead. Then, combine the 2 pics in photoshop and you'll have a 'perfectly' exposed pic.

    on second thought, I thought this image can be salvaged...

    by cropping the bottom dark area. I find this helps to "brighten" the hotel significantly. ok ok I added the sky on top to retain the 35mm format





    .... same image with unsharped mask. Brighter isn't?

    hi there!

    Good shot! Nice use of frame. Instead of getting the building 'properly exposed', why don't u try a total sillhoute of the buidling instead? I believe this can be done by metering the sky.

    if only u can get a perfect symmetry on the left and right side! Oh well..If only.
    I believe the photog has no control in this case.

    But great shot nonetheless, love the skies!

    Hi Jas - yes, u hv brighten the hotel but the composition seems (to me) unbalance.

    Personally, I still prefer yr earlier suggestions, either wait for the hotel to be lighted or meter the hotel and combine the shots in PS.

    Anyway, a very interesting effort by you , I really learning fm u guys...

    Nice try... Perhaps you can try out the stacking suggestion! I am sure it will be a cracking shot.

    One last thought, perhaps a tighter crop and to the left will be better?
