    I took those pics without a tripod so the quality arent that great but those are probably the most beautiful night photos I have taken so far.

    Do you guys actually see the difference between #1 and #2? I posted both of them in some other forum and people seem to prefer the first one...

    the main difference is actually the composition. #2 would work for me if there were more stars visible. But since there are not, I also prefer #1.

    Hey Hobbes, nice to see your night photos from Stockholm. Where were you standing for the first couple of photos? I know where you were in order to photograph the Grand Hotel...!

    I should dig out my own pic of Grand Hotel at night, coming to think of it...

    lol I must be blind yeah I guess the composition in #1 is better.

    I was standing on a hill facing Gamla Stan not far from the Hilton hotel.
    It's like totally dark there during the night, no lights at all so you kinda want to go there with someone lol
    its the exactly same spot where I took this pic:

    well all those photos were taken at ISO 1600 and most of them were actually a little bit blurry but I kinda cheated and post processed them lol


    heh I really need to get a tripod :D
    or a camera with even better high ISO performance, like EOS 5D mkII ^^

    scroll up and you'll see my answer. I dont know the name of that hill though but it's not very hard to find during the day. just walk past Hilton hotel from Slussen and you'll probably see a small alley leading to it.

    Ah, thanks for that, Hobbes. Since you're directly facing Riddarholmen, I assume the hill you were on is this_one since the photo you see behind my link is taken FROM Riddarholmen to the other side of the water (???). (But I must admit, I find Stockholm geography not QUITE so easy).

    Oh yes. I recognise that building. Good, now I know where you were! Must keep that place in mind for next time, whenever that is going to be. But I am convinced now that I will go to Stockholm again!
