Kerry Park, right? Looks better than my version.

Kerry Park is right. I took a look at the one you did and I am think you just need to go with a f/11 next time. The shutter needs to be open longer to get more details.

Yea, I've gotten some pretty good night pics, but I've been stuck with shooting in low aperture by default I guess. You're right, I should try some longer exposures next time.

Do you have a tripod? I picked a cheap one over at kits camera and it has made my work tons better.

yep, I use a tripod for 95% of my night shots. But until this month I've been using a decent fujifilm 10x optical zoom point and shoot. It is better than most point and shoots, but definitely no DSLR. I finally got a Nikon D40 with 18-55mm and 55-200mm Nikkor zoom lenses. It's so much better... and it's quite light compared to my dad's D70. So I just deleted my widescreen Kerry Park pic because its resolution was pretty poor. I lost the original. Oh well. I keep all my pictures now.

Right on. I am using a D70s and the weight is what I was after. I never shot hand hald if I don't have to, day or night. I guess the best thing to do as always is shoot and shoot and then shoot some more.

Show off. LOL Great capture.
I took this in Queen Anne's Kerry Park.
Now where did you take you shot. I love this. What lens did you use, 24 shots WOW?

I was thinking it must be Kerry Park. It is the best location to capture the mountain behind the city in a perfect composition, isn't it?

:blushes: :shrug: I wasn't really trying to show off too much. The name of your image just tickled me so much I wanted to say, "NO, this is Seattle". :rofl:

My shot is from a highrise at the edge of Capitol Hill, Belmont Street. I will have to add the exif info back in. The lens was EFS 17-85, the kit lens that came with the camera.

Thank you for the compliment. :bow: :thanks: :excited:

I have been looking for some place like that too shoot from. Some place that I can get on the roof or a parking garage.

I know you weren't trying to show off, in fact I was looking to find more photo friends in Seattle so that I can start a club called "Seattle Knights". Just a bunch of people who would like to do more night photography but are afraid to for safety reason. I'm think if there are five us out there we can protect each other. I move faster then I like to when I shoot because of fear that someone will take my camera.

I have been looking to do some panos with my 18-55mm, like the one you did. I have been trying to get the shot from Kerry park but those trees are in the way. Wait a min, there just torn down the building the is across the street from the park. If I went up the hill I could get a better shot.

try setting the tripod up on the ledge. make sure its well balanced and clip it to you. the extra height gets your camera over the tree line. it can be a pain in the ass to do but its worth it. just be careful

It will be interesting to see what you can get before they put up another building to take its place. Creative maneuvering reaps great rewards, mmm? I will be watching :eyes:

Hands up for safety in numbers. I'd never do a night shoot without an assistant. Actually, I don't even like to do daytime location shoots without. My daughter and I do an occasional photo safari. We always have a lot of fun, but end up eating, drinking and laughing way more than taking photos.

I have been friending everyone I can find on here that is in the area in hopes of eventually finding a Seattle club or forum on dA. I hadn't even thought about the idea of a real world club.

I am going to try and give it a shot in the morning. I am thinking of getting up early before sun up to do shots for HDR and Infrared after the sun is up.

Well I think we have may 3 people (including myself) for the club. I will keep you posted.

Well they have everything gated off, so that was a bust. Cool think was when I got to Kerry Park there was no one there, had a chance to walk around and no have anyone look at me funny.

Try local museums too - I bet you could get an account with them for postcards and stuff. (I should be taking my own advice, eh? haha)
