    Took these shots from the roof of a parking garage for the movie theater.

    This was my favorite of the night. Part of O'Hare airport at night with a plane taking off and another flying by.

    I gotta try some more shots like this again. They're quite different than my usual daily fare and I like the look of them.

    I am not an expert, so take this for what it is worth...just my opinion.

    1 & 2 - there is too much "canvas" for so little going on. At night, or for any shot, if you use the whole "canvas", the whole shot has to be interesting. The concept is okay, so you say you are going to work on it, I am sure you will improve. Remember; lighting, composition, and subject.


    Your shot of the airport...that is using the canvas. I really like the concept and use of your shot.


    How long was your shutter set at? What aperture?

    Actually shot 1 has the building (as seen in shot 2) cropped out to narrow the negative space. I felt the lights of the cars would be enough but I understand what you're saying. I also don't mind the crop.

    (EXIF as follows)

    Shot 1
    Focal Length: 135.0mm

    Exposure Time: 8.000 s
    Aperture: f/11.0
    ISO Equiv.: 500
    Whitebalance: Manual
    Metering Mode: spot
    Exposure: aperture priority (semi-auto)

    Shot 2
    Focal Length: 135.0mm

    Exposure Time: 30.000 s
    Aperture: f/11.0
    ISO Equiv.: 100
    Whitebalance: Manual
    Metering Mode: spot
    Exposure: aperture priority (semi-auto)

    Shot 4
    Focal Length: 135.0mm (35mm equivalent: -21...
    Exposure Time: 30.000 s
    Aperture: f/11.0
    ISO Equiv.: 100
    Whitebalance: Manual
    Metering Mode: spot
    Exposure: aperture priority (semi-auto)


    This is the same shot as 4 but taken a few minutes earlier. Pretty much straight from the camera so you have an idea of how I saw it.
