    I took these photos two years ago with a P&S camera (Canon PowerShot Pro S3). They were very grainy and improperly exposed, but the composition was great. I didn't want these photos to go to waste so I attempted to salvage them in Lightroom. Let me know what you think!

    1. Rainbow Bridge (this was underexposed, taken from a moving bus)

    2. Osaka at Night (was to grainy, tried to turn grain into artistic effect)

    3. Nara Cemetery

    Any feedback is strongly appreciated.

    I think the first shot would be interesting with the sun light.

    With the first image, I would crop out half the dead space in the sky. It would look more like a true city scape...All n I I think it is a wonderful image....:thumbup:

    The second is also very nice, but has a tad too much noise for my taste. Normally I love grain, but this looks like noise. Try some selective cleaning and It will be another wonderful city scape...

    The third looks pretty good. That does look more like grain. I find it interesting that there is housing over looking the cemetery there. Gosh, I could spend a day there in that place..Thanks for sharing.

    Great night shot...from a moving bus?
    I like the first two photos the best, last one is cluttered but fascinating [don't mind me...I'm not used to cities!]
