    2nd shot is great but the 1st and 3rd needs to be a tad sharper

    Looks like a shot of Mt. Victoria/Oriental Parade.

    Here are some I took from Oriental Parade in 2008.






    And one from the top of Mount Victoria. It didn't quite stitch properly because of the positions of the original photos, but it still turned out ok.

    I really like the 2nd photo - night time photography is something I want to do a bit more of. If you don't mind me asking, has it had anything done to it in Photo Shop....and if so what?

    Thanks, I can see what you mean. It was foggy as well on the first one, and I wasn't too sure how to handle the fog within the photo as regards to settings etc! Any tips??

    I cut off the top and bottom, which were just empty black bits. I might have also changed saturation in Canon Digital Photo Professional, but I'm not sure. I don't often do any editing at all apart from crop/contrast.

    Thanks for that - I'm trying to learn a bit more on Paint Shop Pro at the moment but I'm never quite sure what to mess around with and change on my photos - I think its good to find out what other people do! Cheers.

    Re: Photo-a-day

    For night time shots, I tend to overexpose a little bit. You pick up the colourful "light pollution" in the sky. If in front of some water, with the long exposure, you get that velvety quality too. IMO, it's not a big deal having lots of blown out white bits from lights if you get the colourful atmosphere.

    Here's one I took, leaning camera on a pillar or something so the exposure wasn't long enough for the silky water

    Hong Kong Opera House IIRC

    I would say the fog has lowered the overall contrast of your image, which is why it looks "dull".
    Increasing the contrast slightly in post may help a bit there.

    Looking at the exif, 30sec at f/14; I personally wouldn't have shot it at f/14.. f/8 - f/11 probably would be enough unless you needed the slower shutter to catch motion blur.

    Also, long exposures are usually done at 100 iso. If you have a tripod, there's no excuse not to use 100 iso

    (I was trying to see what it would look like at a cooler colour temp. Gah, blasted jpgs.)
