    I stopped by the library to take some shots...nothing I am happy with...I need to go back with a better tripod (one that will rotate to shoot vertically).

    Thanks...The tower is probably about 30 feet tall. All I did was shoot up from the bottom right hand corner. The outer coloring of it is a soft whitish/yellowish and because the lighting on it at night has an orange tint, it made a very nice tone. Like I said, though, the tripod I was using would only pan...no tilt...(why? I don't really know...I was trying out my friend's)...so it made it tough. I was laying down on the ground trying to adjust the tripod's legs so that it gave me the angle I wanted...

    When I go back I want to do a good set of pretty long exposure shots for some nice star streaks and then take a proper exposure of the library itself...

    Anyway...I'll get them up next time.

    hard to establish a good overall exposure at this angle...you did well!

    would love to see this vertical.

    Incase anyone is interested...

    The only other (acceptable) one from the set that I think is post-worthy.

    You are setting yourself some very harsh standards if you say these two are only so-so, for being your first pics taken with the new 300D! If I were you, I'd be over the top with these results, mostly so after the results I got out of my own night-time photography with the Powershot the other day... So do a little dance and be happy! These are wonderful (I say ... but my standards may be low, who knows!?!?!? :er: )
