    I wanted to post this picture as it is my first with my new Nikon D3000.
    I took it at 02.10am on this Friday morning using the 18-55mm lens set on i believe aperture priority at the Science Museum here in London and i don't think it turned out too bad considering that the majority of the lights were off for the night.
    I didn't use a tripod and rested the camera on top of a stand in the main entrance area.
    I was looking at the way the doors are lit by the blue lights from above.
    I would appreciate any comments about how it looks.

    Sincerely
    Ian

    The picture is very centered and it seems like there is a WB issue. Try to level out the floor and maybe shoot from one side more than the other or a high or low angle just experiment. GL

    I agree with TJ. Try shooting at different angle to make it more interesting

    Thank you for the comments.
    Where the doors are located there is a wall to the left and right with large posters on them and i couldn't really get any closerwithout them being in shot.
    I couln't use a tripod and had to use the only thing available to support the camera at the time.
    And i was concerned that i didn't get any part of the background in focus as i felt it would spoil the shot.
    If WB stands for white balance then i am still learning all the controls so it is going to take time to find my way around.

    Until you get the hang of your camera I would make sure that whe white balance is set to auto.
