    I got a wild hair up my butt last night and decided to give the night time shooting thing a shot. This is what I got from the train station. This is my first foray into shooting at night and dealing with lights, shadows and glare so, feel free to critique.

    These shots are awesome! I don't know about anyone else but I love the coloring in these shots.
    I think my favorite out of the two has to be #2. I like how that rail just comes right at you. Great job.

    I'm not sure, the subjects aren't that interesting and Number 1 has that really distracting... thing... in the bottom of it.

    The exposure in one is also a bit washed out, but I kind of like the green wash it has. It kind of reminds me that Splinter Cell video game :)

    You know, Ive gotten the "subject" comment before. I find that I dont really look for subjects for my photos. I shoot landscapes and I want the viewers eye to travel over the photo to find things and not just center on one object. I dont know if thats the wrong way to shoot, but I think thats how I look at my photos.

    I like to shoot colors so that the photo evokes a certain mood for the viewer as well. I really dont shoot "subjects". I never really thought about that until your comment. So, thanks for the comment, it made me look a little deeper into my approach.

    And thanks Bully, you picked right up on the colors which is what I do and why I shoot.

    I understand the shooting for landscapes, but in this case, the foreground is somewhat ruined with a huge chunk of it being taken up by an out of focus object.

    Colours are amazing and the second pic is sweet.
