    Went out with a few people to try my hand at night photography. Had a great time, even though it was -20C and windy.

    Here are some of the better ones... C&C would be greatly appreciated

    Thanks for the comments.

    At -20C, time isn't on my side. I'll try and reshoot when its a bit warmer outside hehe

    I like all of these, nice work! #2 is my favorite.

    #1 seems tilted a little?

    Boy, I doubt ANYONE could have pursuaded me to do any nighttime photography at -20°C! You are BRAVE!

    I really really like the second. It is easily my favourite of the series.
    POV in the first is nice. But I miss the top of the roof. Don't mind your friends inside the frame, though, only DO I miss the roof.

    They really are very nice !
    Even though #1 is awesome, I do like #2 the best.
    btw, was #1 taken with an ultrawide lense ?

    Can't believe this is your first attempt! :) I would be chuffed if my first attempt came out half as good as this :)

    Thanks for the compliments. It was indeed my first attempt. However, I am taking classes and trying to apply all I am learning when shooting.

    Most of my pictures were taken with a Canon 10-22, at 10mm.

    Tried some zoom pans and other stuff, but didn't come out very good
