My first real attempt to take photos at night. My first submission as well.

The lagoon on campus at UCSB with the University tower and lights in the back ground. My trusty steed in the foreground. UCSB is a biking campus. Over 17000 students and a large majority have bicycles. It can get crazy~

A little touch up in photoshop. Still learning how to do the rest!

From one former UCSB geology student to an (almost) another -- nice beginning score, and welcome to DPC! Hope to see more of your shots here in the future.

Is this out by the lagoon at UCSB? Nice nightime shot.

Very good job! I like the shy mood in which the bike is entering the picture, and the colors of the lights and the reflections are great :) 7

I quite like how the bike isn't the first thing I see. It's just kinda quietly there.

Wizard lighting and profiles of trees and bikes. Would score higher if there were slightly less going on; might have straightened the tower, cropped a bit at the right and bottom.

a little hard to see the bike here. I just about DMNC'd you until I scanded over the picture again.

This picture is really dark, so you barely see the bike along with everything else.

I like the idea of the sihouette look. Nice job.

Very nice. I like this image a lot. Although, the background is a distraction to the main subject its a very good image.
