    Based on what I learned when I posted some night photography here, some articles I read and some experimentation I went out at night again. Here are some of the results.
    Comments, Critiques Welcome

    #1 Waterfall. Jeez, it was cold out! Anybody some tips to keep the highlights from getting blown?

    #2 Train at a local station. You can get really close (maybe 4-5 feet from the trains). I was a bit flummoxed as the train arrived at the same time I did. Managed this 4 sec exposure.

    #3 Hope nobody minds me posting a 'Holiday' Tree :wink:

    #4 Church in New Milford, CT

    #5 Any suggestions on making this better?

    I dig #4 the best then #5 the church is a nice subject. Its hard to see whats in #2, #3 wouldnt be bad if there was more to it... #1 looks alittle buissy maybe cropped or shot at alittle different angle.
    exposure wise they look pretty good. keep it up.

    I like them all, but personally would have cropped the first shop to accentuate the falls and the foreground and leave the stuff to the left for bin 13. The churches I wouldn't do anything different. Good work.
