Challenge: Free Study 2008-10 (Advanced Editing VII)
Camera: Nikon D50
Lens: Sigma 10-20mm f/4-5.6 EX DC HSM for Nikon
Date: Oct 27, 2008
Date Uploaded: Oct 27, 2008

Yerba Buena Gardens, San Francisco.
Two images, one I converted for 95% of the photo. I converted that image a couple times to get more dynamic range. Another underexposed version was used for the Moma(circle building and the lights on the right and the top of the tallest tower. Then blended different versions by hand to try and get the most range without the excessive tonemapping look.

This was a quick shoot after work, I put my camera on my backpack and shot with the timer. No tripod necessary. :P

This is one of the most beautiful and perfect night photos I've seen. The exposure and focus are flawless.

Very sharp and nice effect with the sky. The diagonal lines makes it really stand out.

strange colors, but they kinda work. I seem to want to rotate it CCW by about 0.5 degree and crop the buildings a little tighter.

Superb and impressive shot. Great colours in this one. I am giving it an 8
Ps. I have an entry in this challenge myself as well but it's not really going anywhere.

how strange, did you use a long shutter speed or something?
