    Nice perspective.. what's the shutter speed/apeture?

    Also like the others said, a bit noisy.

    get rid of the noise and lower the brightness and it will look very nice. oh, and your iso was obviously too high. for long exposure, feel free to drop it back to a normal setting (200 or 400).

    Ran through a noise removal program, adjusted shadows and highlights, levels, upped saturation a bit, lowered brightness and uppled contrast.

    exactly how i thought the picture should've looked like :bigthumb:

    and i guess you can crop the picture right at the top of the container to cut out the trash looking stuff at the bottom :dunno:

    From a certain perspective, I actually like the trash stuff at the bottom. It sort of shows a contrast with the commericalism of the tall buildings and bright lights in the background.

    But if you just want to focus on the city itself, then yeah, trash looks better cut out.
