    i know night photography is very tricky esp getting a proper WB. i was hoping you guys can critique the following.

    for #1 i like the fact that the sky stayed night blue, but the street lights and the lights from the houses gave out an orangey color cast to it. then looking at #2 it's just all around orangey.

    all the setting were a tad different from the other but i'm pretty sure i shouldn't be getting that orange glow. i've seen various night shots in which the sky and lights stayed a well balanced color. any suggestions?

    I like 2 only because in 1 you have a person and you can see the parking lot but other then that they are both great shots

    Good job. Seems like you are far from the downtown area, I would like to see how #2 will look without the suburb/houses.

    i like both but no1 more becuase you have a person(first object) viewing your main scene( your other object) gives complexity to your photo. i like.
