    Foggy Night at One International Place, Evelyn Moakley bridge, InterContinental Hotel

    I was bored last night and so I photographed these three locations.
    Please let me know what you think of the photos.

    Foggy Night at One International Place, Boston
    Foggy Night One International Place consists of three separate but connected buildings. The cylindrical component is 46 stories and 600 feet, the taller rectangular mass is 27 stories and 365 feet, and the smallest component is 19 stories and 263 feet.
    Also featured is the Evelyn Moakley bridge
    Evelyn Moakley Bridge carries Seaport Boulevard over Fort Point Channel.

    Children's Wharf Boardwalk
    The Boston Children's Museum is located on the Fort Point Channel on a wide section of HarborWalk that becomes a bustle of activity in the summertime. Visitors can bring their own lunch to enjoy at picnic tables next to the HarborWalk. Since July 2005, the public has been enjoying the new HarborWalk segment and park built by the MBTA next to the Boston Children's Museum. The expanded Harborwalk provides added space for free events sponsored by the Boston Children's Museum, including mural painting, summertime music and dance series on the HarborWalk, and movies at the Milk Bottle. The new open space next to the Museum provides a lawn area for play and large rocks for children to climb. The extension of the HarborWalk, linking the Boston Children's Museum to the Evelyn Moakley Bridge, and the much-needed open green space, is part of the MBTA's Silver Line waterfront construction mitigation.

    These are personal opinions and not professional, so take it as you will.

    1st - With the exception of the yacht, i like it alot
    2nd - meh
    3rd - i like the spot, just would prefer to see more sky in that specific shot.

    Like I said, i'm not a professional photographer, just my observations.

    Also, those pictures seem very clear. settings? glass? pp?

    1st I think the Yacht needs to be ther for clarity but TY
    2nd yeah I do wish I had more time to work on that shot. understood
    3rd. I was more interested in the Reflections in the water than the sky because the sky was very very foggy and made for a sort of grainy / noisy shot. and I think the water was clearer.

    And Insofar as my gear. Point and Shoot. No Glass. No PP

    Here is the EXIF for photo 1

    What is EXIF data?
    Almost all new digital cameras save JPEG (jpg) files with EXIF (Exchangeable Image File) data. Camera settings and scene information are recorded by the camera into the image file. Examples of stored information are shutter speed, date and time, focal length, exposure compensation, metering pattern and if a flash was used.

    Kinda hard to believe the last shot is really a 15 second exposure. The water doesn't have that matte look to it.

    if there was fog in the air then there was little to no wind meaning the surface of the water would have been pretty still in a harbor :hsughno:

    nice pics, did you use some kind of filter to get the lights to do the star effect?

    IIRC the star effect has to do with whatever aperature you set it at. I could investimigate that a bit more but I'm too tired. :mamoru:

    I never knew this, so I did some test shots, and yes, the higher the Fstop, the bigger the star. IBthankscaptainobvious

    yes yes the F stop has to do with the star affect as does the apperature.
    I had both wide open the night I took these. F stop at 8 and Shutter Speed was 15 seconds.

    fun times. and thank you all for your comments. I am learning so much more about photography.

    Good stars start at F8.... but be warned if you are using a croped sensor (1.6 300d-400d, 20-40d) you can start losing image quality going too high.
    Between f8 and f12 is good for cropped.
    Full frame can go higher.
