great shot for the first pix, the 2nd is too dark. Outlines of the building would make the picture much better.

Thanks for the comment. Not too sure how to make the outlines of the buildings though...

Here's another photo.

#1 will benefit from a lower angle, this will effectively 'raise' the branches and leaves higher, with less overlapping with the buildings in the background, thus clarifying the layers in the frame. i believe this is Xitang?

you are most correct. That place is Xitang. Was walking about in the morning when I saw this scene of 2 old man talking while they parked their boats there. Don't want to disrupt and no time to frame, so just shoot there and then.

Any chance to rectify now or not?

Noted. #2 & #3 were taken between 5.30pm and 6pm I think. but the lights only turned on during that time for #2. (Was on group tour so no control of time) :)

Btw, I'm surprized that most see #2 and #3 as too dark. I'm viewing thru my notebook LCD screen and both pics look ok to me particularly #3. The building lights in #2 were too bright already. Maybe something wrong with my eyes or my notebook...

There is defintely nothing wrong with your eyes. I agree with you that the areas with lights are bright enough but I guess what the guys meant was that the areas without lights are pretty dark and the outlines the buildings are not properly accentuated as a result. Don't think there is much else that you can do to help with the scenario presented to you. Maybe a little ps will do the trick.

Hope you don't mind me playing around with your photo without informing you first. Let me know if you want me to take it down alright. Done purely for the sake of sharing. cheers;)

You must have had a great time there... Hope to visit one day myself

#1 : the people seems disengaged from the photo. Kinda out of place feeling.

#2 : Technical details needed. Some of the buildings are not lighted, so what's the use of taking them at night when they'll appear...to be "invisible"?

great attempt though. keep shooting!
