    love the shots!!! I always try to keep the horizon in the top third, or bottom third of the pic., the last one is cool, just crop some sky out and its awesome!!

    Nice shots, the exposure is great with each of them. I would crop some off of both the top & bottom to give it a panoramic feel...too much dead space IMO.

    Nice shots. I'd be interested in seeing the settings for these shots, particularly the last photo :D - I'm trying my hand at night photography, alas with not too much success :confused:

    I think the exposure is bang on,especially the third one. I too would love to know the settings you used. Great photos.

    thanks guys for the suggestions :D (note to self, fill the frame more)

    here are the exifs.
    1:-
    ISO 50
    1/6sec
    F4
    -0.3EV
    tripod
    photoshop-warming filter, unsharp mask
    after taking a test shot and checking the histogram, I adjusted the exposure compensation by -0.3

    2:-
    ISO 50
    15sec
    F8
    tripod
    photoshop-saturation, unsharp mask

    3:-
    ISO 50
    15sec
    F8
    tripod
    photoshop-level, saturation, unsharp mask
    I brighten the sky a bit. in hindsight I should have used a higher ISO, maybe 100-200 but wasn't sure where the histogram should sit and the sky was darkening fast.
