    Popped a trip to Brighton Pier tonight when it was late so it was pretty dead, got some pics. C&C please, these haven't been altered in PS at all aside from size and a quick auto sharp filter. I'm thinking of going B&W for a lot of them.
    Also, is there any way at all to get rid of the horrible light silhouette around the lights? If I stop down it's underexposed, and at a good exposure it leaves these marks.

    Hey if you're editing the RAW turn up Clarity to 80-100 range. I don't have accurate or technical rationale behind it, but if i've got an edge of a radiating body in a photo and I get an effect similar to the one in #1 I turn the clarity up in the RAW and it lessens it.

    Thanks for that, I don't think the lens I mainly used is very good for night photography (Nikon 1.8D 50mm) as I was working out my exposure by taking some test shots I got this effect from one photo! (Baring in mind this is when I realised I still had the UV filter attached and swiftly removed it)

    There are characteristics inherent to a lens that makes it more or less suitable for nighttime photography? If you mean low light I would say that can be compensated by proper exposure.. and a tripod.

    In my opinion the initial flaw that produced the halo around the lights was due to improper exposure not the lens, but I could be wrong. I just suggested something thats mitigated the flaw in Post and has worked for me in the past.

    Edit: interesting reflection due to the UV filter :)

    Heres the last one with processing, I could really do with more C&C, c'mon, anyone?

    I don't do CC on others shot's so won't start now, I will tell you the halos are due to underexposure, but only a stop or two so we're nearly there, I do like the shots but then again I'm a sucker for night photography. H
