    I have a new remote trigger, so I decided to play. Saw a shot I wanted to take earlier in the day, and tried at a couple shots of the city from a distance. I'm not wowed by these, but I'd like some insight.

    Shot with a 40D and either a Sigma 10-20 or a Canon 28-135. About a 500 ISO and shot wide open.

    the WB on the first one is WAY off. Way too yellow.

    Also if you're using a tripod always shoot iso 100.

    the 2nd and 3rd are extremely dark.

    :uh:

    never fucked w/ the white balance. Fuck me.



    And shots 2 & 3 are dark because anything over a 4 second exposure ended up shakey. I need a more heavy duty tripod...

    The Sodium vapor lights will do that. All the pics really don't have any compelling subject matter, obviously way worse in 2 &3.

    werd.

    2 & 3 would only be compelling to people who live here

    No need for high ISO on longer exposures

    You really need a remote trigger for night shots, its best with lowest iso and higher F-stop and control your light with shutter exposure rather then high iso and wide open.

    I've got a remote trigger. I need a heavier tripod. Mine is too light for long exposures.

    I can drop the ISO down, but I was using the lowest f-stop I could.

    Good tripod is a must, even the slightest wind can shake the camera.
