    wow, some stunning shots there! Is it just me though or does the horizon seem slightly off in the first one? The buildings look upright but the water seems to be flowing off to the right. I'm a bit confused.....

    Thanks!

    It's an issue with perspective. Shot from Belle Isle, out in the river, the shoreline seen is not perpendicular to the camera position. The left side of the composition is further away than the right side, thus the perspective pushes slightly up and toward the center of the shot.

    Imagine (or try) standing in the middle of a road and shooting a closeup of the buildings down the street with a long lens, including the curb and part of the street, and you'll see the same thing happen.

    Hi there.

    Those are some great pictures of a great place to visit: The Detroit River. The colour of the sky is absolutely stunning.

    One thing I noticed in the first, second and last picture, is there is a little bit of noise in the sky, though this was probably from using a higher ISO.

    Very nice pictures. :)

    Very nice work, its good to see Detroit put in a good light.

    I just wonder how safe you were on Belle Isle at night?

    I've never had any trouble there. Actually, I've worked and shot in a lot of places that people said would get me killed, and so far, no problems. Maybe I'm just lucky. ;)
