Shoot, Edit, Submit Weekly Photo Entry

Friday, December 30, 2011

The other day I headed downtown to catch some photos of the river, and as I was leaving I realized that I have never tried to shoot downtown at night. The buildings are all outlined with lights for the holidays, so it's the perfect time of year for such a capture. I ended up dragging the whole family back downtown for a night shot. Most of the shots I took were less than stellar so I'll be heading back for more practice soon. I wish they had a little more clarity. I probably needed to use the remote rather than pressing the shutter release by hand, but this one turned out OK.  I'm submitting it to Kim and Misty's Shoot. Edit. Submit. challenge as my pick for favorite photo of the week. 







And, I was thrilled to find that I made it into last week's top 5 among some stunning pics by some super talented photogs. Wow! Thanks so much Kim and Misty!! Your weekly link up is always so inspiring ;)

Pretty stinking good night shot. If you don't mind me asking, what town is that? I totally need to do more night photography. I have barely tried it. I have learned a lot with some tutorials, but I do better when I get out and practice.
I thought your shot last week was realky creative. I love the bokeh.

Really glad that your clever shot got chosen in the top 5 and equally glad you felt thrilled about it. Great night shot - really love the strips of colour in the water reflection - give the photo a real depth.
