    No worries, I moved it for you. If it ever happens again, just contact the moderators (PM us or use the "report" button on the bottom of the post) and we can move it.

    Yessssss! The first shot is very sensual,very alluring,and I just love the way you've shot down the length of the window. using a technique that back when I learned it some 20-odd years ago, was called "skimming". The brightness rendering of the blue colors from the neon sign is excellent. The red coloring is very striking. Most definitely, that is a fine picture. The second shot does not have nearly the same degree of excellent, dramatic, and revealing lighting, and the bokeh in the background appears what I call "nervous"; see the bricks on the left side of the frame? Not so pleasant. In shot #2, the face and body appear udner-lighted to me, and it looks like the shot is also a bit under-exposed on her face and body as well.

    Yes, i do see what you're saying, although I didn't notice it with the bricks my thought was the bokeh balls shining from the cars looked too unnatural to me. thanks for the info on skimming, I didn't know that way of the shooting had a name. lately, I've just started seeing angles that work better than others. As for the exposure, I can't seem to find a metering mode that fits me for nighttime, and shooting at 1.4 on my fifty makes it hard to nail focus.

    Shooting at f/1.4 at this distance range otfen leads to insufficient depth of field to make a really GOOD picture...it's better to stop the lens down to f/3.5 or f/4, and get the doggone subject in crisp,clear focus. Night time metering can be tricky, yes, understood!

    While the lighting is not as good as the first, I actually prefer the posing of the second. I think it looks spontaneous and more candid. Happy New Year!

    I guess I still need to let go of shooting at the lowest aperture I’m able, definitely will stop down next time.

    That’s not always an easy habit to break.
