    Hey all,

    Was shooting around Old Cairo and took these night-time exposures. I wanted to capture the flow of traffic with the citadel and the mosque lit up in the background. I think I've captured it, but I would appreciate any critique or comments.

    For the third picture, I wanted to keep the composition as is but can't get rid of the lightpost in the way, does anyone want to attempt to photoshop it away?

    Thanks!

    all the shots appear to be tilted a couple degrees clockwise.

    Yeah you're right. I took my cheap $20 tripod with me because the other one was too heavy and expensive to take to Egypt lol...

    Any ideas how I can fix this tilt using photoshop?

    Rotate image counterclockwise a few degrees, start with one degree and see if that fixes it.

    There are several different ways to fix a tilted horizon in Photoshop. Look here and see if one of these will work for you.

    These would look A LOT better if the lights didn't have that glare/starburst going on. Very cool other than that though, I think.
