    this was my first time using any sort of long time exposure..
    they make my city look a lot more exciting than it is in reality, i think.

    i think they could've been a little sharper, and i sort of wish i hadn't cut out the top of the building in 3,
    but i reeeally love the glowing of all the lights.

    looks like something i could wear around my neck.

    I honestly don't know anything about photography on the technical side, my reason for joining this site :D, but as someone that has never seen Boston these photos are fantastic. #2 is my favourite!

    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos NOT OK to edit
    For someone who was trying their very first long exposure/nighttime photography you did really well!
    Not only did you choose a very nice vantage point for the "aerial view" if your town, you also managed to capture a lot of interesting aspects, like the building in #4 on the very right with the many windows/balconies (?) right in the roof.

    Do you know that you now have an assignment, i.e. to go to all the interesting buildings that you managed to capture here and take them a) on a beautiful day, and b) from road level at night? Sure enough that is what members with so much luck in their first approach to nighttime photography have to do on TPF! Oh yeah ;) ;) ;) ;) ;) ;) ;) ;) ;)!!!!!!

    Good stuff, you did the right thing in getting stuck in. The steepest learning curve is when your actually trying something for yourself.

    Keep up the good work............
