Challenge: Neon (Basic Editing I)

Location: Niagara Falls, New York
Date: Aug 13, 2004

Shutter: 8.0

This picture was taken with my old faithful Sony Mavica CD 400 as I was more familiar with it's manual controls and lens capability, than my new D60. This was taken on a very crowded observation deck on the American side with me amusingly trying to gaurd the tripod from bumps. There was no editing performed on the picture.

Beautiful shot from the American side!! I wondered if it was as beautiful as from the canadian side.. you showed me it is at night!! You caught the lights in just the perfect timing as they do rotate colors every few minutes. The light beams in the mist are awe inspiring!

Thank you for the votes and comments left on this picture. Seeing the other ribbon winners, I am not so sure I deserve the blue. To all of those who left comments and suggestions, I have tried to PM each of you, as I am truly grateful for any comment or suggestion you took the time to leave. I at least wanted to spend the same amount of time to acknowledge that I not only read and considered, but appreciated each thought and/or suggestion you made in regards to my photo.
Thanks again. :)

How cool is that! I need to go see Niagara Falls someday. :) Great job.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/24/2004 07:53:47 PM
Simply stunning. My one minor suggestion would be a tighter crop at the top, to help center the lights better. Still, my favorite image of the challenge. Congrats.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/24/2004 02:14:07 AM
Beautiful.
But seems too much dark area.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/23/2004 09:32:28 PM
Stunning. would like the blacks to be a little blacker, and maybe the colors a little bolder, but i realize there are limitations with all the mist. 10, because i love it.

gets my attention immediately and somewhat unique for this challenge ...
that earns high points

Beautiful use in neon.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/21/2004 07:07:41 AM
A closer crop of the falls, omitting the city in the background, and I would have given this 8 or 9.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/20/2004 01:09:29 AM
Great idea and overall great photo. I would have cropped the bottom a bit tighter as the red mist is a very dominant aspect and distracts the eye from the colored spotlights.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/19/2004 11:45:44 PM
By far the best shot in this challenge in my opinion.
Great mood & exposure.
Had the buildings on the right side been sharp, it would be perfect.

What awesome colors and lighting...its just beautiful. 10

nice colors
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/19/2004 06:14:09 PM
Nicely done. The soft light and long exposure make for an erie three dimentional effect. Hope it gets a ribbon.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/19/2004 12:16:00 PM
I would have like this better without the city in the background.

08/18/2004 02:48:04 AM
Very pretty. I did not know there were skycrapers at the falls (I'm an Aussie). That's a bit of a shame to see man encroach so much on such a natural wonder but WOW the night lights are awesome. Great job.

magnificent shot, you really trapped neon colors
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/18/2004 12:36:30 AM
This is nice, but I think to make it more neon, a little contrast boost would greatly help :)
