Hello everyone, i am new to this forum. I have a canon EOS Rebel XT with a wide angle lens, an original lens, and a telephoto lens. The wide angle has a polarizing filter and UV filter on it. I am trying to take night shots of the view from my balcony but the pictures come out in my opinion terrible. First let me show you the shot i am trying to take: link to large size: http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2058/2341600411_507a684084_b.jpg as you can see it is terrible. when you compare it to this picture i took in New York, there is a world of difference: link to large: http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2072/2311286047_89b636efb3_b.jpg why is it that the new york skyline is so much crisper and clearer than the view from my house? Is it because there is more lights in the NY skyline? What settings would you guys suggest based on the information ive provided? Thank you so much in advance.
