Amazing photo! The space needle looks awesome as usual, and I love Mt. Rainier in the background.

That is so hard to get and you are very lucky when you get it. I have been shooting this town for years and i have only 2 shots with it in the background.

It is taking me forever to get back in touch after my vacation! Sorry I haven't been round to comment for a while - you took some time off too?

I cannot seem to get enough of your Seattle city photos, I feel ashamed to ask but what is that tower-like building in the middle that is often associated with Seattle?

Its called the space needle. It was build for the world's fair sometime ago and is an icon for the city

Hey you're the guy I have been seeing leaving comments every where. Thanks for the kind words. Seattle is a great place to shoot but it takes some time getting to know the places to go. I research a lot on the internet. Let me know when you will be here next an I will send you my list of best spots.

Thank you, now what type of info did you want?

:iconkato-cat:
Kato-Cat Featured By Owner Jul 24, 2006
Where to start! I guess the settings used to achieve the effect and why you chose them - the technical decision making. I guess it's largely to do with experience. Much of what I'm doing at night is point, guess, shoot. Of course I've been doing that during the day too, and I have noticed that the trial and error approach eventually builds up knowledge.

Anyway, off to buy remote release today - pushing the button, even on a 30" exposure!, seems to cause some shake!

:iconurbanrural-photo:
UrbanRural-Photo Featured By Owner Jul 26, 2006  Hobbyist Photographer
Here is the info for both shots:
Lens:70-300mm
Focal Length:70mm
Shutter Priority
Multi-pattern metering
1/4 sec - F/4
Exposure Comp: -0.3EV
ISO 200 that is as low as my camera goes but I shoot 100 or 50 with film

The tripod helps with the long exposures. I had a little light out there so I took it down a 3rd of a stop to get the darkness in the captures.

Thanks so much for that - this gives me a starting point for playing around - and it hadn't occured to me to use the exposure comp. Silly, cause I know it's there and i've used it before!!

The best thing you can do is review each shot after you take it. What I a saying is playing with the EV is like bracketing. Go for the meter reading and then click up or down until you fine your taste and they click away. THis better than, seeing on the computer and wishing it was darker or lighter. This is an old slide film trick.
