    well it's closing in on 4am.. and I just got in from a walk around downtown Victoria with Josh, (slacker_jedi). Night photography is something I need to work on but im pretty happy with the pictures.
    Oh and it has come to my attention that my monitor may or may not be set up properly.. my pictures always seem to appear darker on other monitors then they do on mine... so im not sure how these will look for you folks :?

    I was just playing around with my flash on that last one, to see what I could come up with.. :wink:

    I'll see if josh has any he would like to add to here as well...

    oh and I hope the images arn't too big, I think I remember hearing voods say something about keeping them 800pi or smaller, and I usually save mine at 800 so they should be ok..

    Troy :D

    Thanks guys :D Maybe my monitor isn't that off..

    Karissa, there are these lights that are about 10 feet apart and run along the entire shoreline so that you can see the rail I guess above the water. There not even that usefull considering how bright Victoria is at night...

    I like your first the most out of your set. The lighting seems about right on my monitor for all your pictures but it's really guess work to get it right on everyone's.

    If people are visiting this forum from work, then the pictures are mostly like too dark because a lot of companys buy cheapo dark POS monitors. Also LCD monitors are usually pretty bright to begin with so there's also a problem in that area. Then people also manually change their monitors settings so there's another factor. Welcome to my nightmare. ;) Don't you wish there was a standard?

    I love the first on alot. The lighting is great plus I'm a sucker for closeup DOF. The other ones are realy cool to.

    Very nice! I love them. They look fine on my monitor, although I do keep UltraBrite Mode on most of the time. :)
