I've been trying different settings.
Lovely - apart from the boat at the bottom.... spoils the crispness of everything else IMO...
yea I see what you mean. the shutter was open for only 2 seconds. maybe I should have done it longer to get the streaking effect of the lights on the boat. now it just looks blurry. I really thought this was going to be a "money" shot I was close.
Very close I'd say! I suppose you could always re-create when the boats not there???
hehe yup. the skyline thankfully stays stationary. :lmao:
You could also try going later at night...I haven't had a ton of experience with skyline/night shots, but it looks like you went at around dusk. If you go at like 11 or so, the lights seem a lot more vibrant. But still, an excellent shot.
that boat robbed you of a great photo
I would actually recommend going earlier. IMO, the best time for night shots at this time of year is right between 8:30PM to 9:10PM or so (depending on when the sun sets), as the sky gets a deep blue. It really is a beautiful color to have in your shots. I usually consult this page and try to shoot in the time from about 10 minutes after Sunset until before Civil Twilight ends.
