    I'm new here. Fairly new to photography but have taken a few classes on it. I just got my Canon T1i a couple weeks ago. I'm really getting interested in night shots and just thought I'd share a few that I took... these were with no tripod (haven't purchased one yet, still doing my research) and no post photoshop work... Let me know what you guys think. Thanks!

    #2 is cool, though I struggle to believe that it was taken with no tripod and no postprocessing.

    Whilst not having a tripod ( i understand your pain ) a simple crop could save the last photo.

    My humble opinion, too much flash. (If that is indeed flash). I've been toying with night shooting as well, and finally learned to either A: Bounce the flash or B: Diffuse it. If you don't have a diffuser, a piece of white paper works great.
    Just my 2 cents. The second pic is a LITTLE bright for me.. But again, it's simply my opinion and probably differs from most/others

    thanks for your comments guys! :)

    No tripod was used. I had set the camera down on stationary objects (car, fence, brick wall, etc...). so it's almost as good... no PP was used either. I'm very good at photoshop but wanted to get my raw unedited camera skills down first, with the help of your comments, then once I'm better at the basics, I'll throw them into photoshop for some real cool effects :)

    I agree on cropping the last one, it never even occured to me... These are my first pics and I just got this camera, so I'm new to the whole thing. Besides the few photography classes I took in college...

    No flash was used. Just long exposures with the aperature/shutter speed/iso adjusted to compinsate... 15 and 30 sec. exposures to be exact...

    No Tripod /= handheld.

    Saying no tripod was used, implies you hand held.
