Electric North Quay

Since I started this blog this I have been out at night with a camera twice so I'm in need of some practice. This is my first attempt at a "Brisbane by night" shot with the camera balanced on the balustrade of the William Jolly Bridge. Must invest in a tripod...
It's a bit garish!

Back to the drawing board...

Don't put yourself down. This is very nice...a tripod would help with the sharpness and let you take a longer exposure...you could use a remote or the timer...

But I like the "sparkliness" of this shot.

I'm with Jacob ... dont be hard on yourself. I need night-shot practise too ... wanna have one a week where we encourage each other ... works a treat encouragement does ... posting on a Sunday is a good idea ... bit of a dead day for visitors and commenters ... over to you ...

Hi Cara, I like your photo taken at night. It's certainly an art though. Had a go at swirling seagulls the other night (there were fireworks and the poor birds were going loopy). Came out with 5 black pictures - oh well. Onward!

Greetings from Brighton and London when I next visit :)

Hilary - shame they didn't come out.. what a great idea for a picture!

Julie - that's a great idea. I'll let you know when my tripod gets here

I know this is old news now but I just came across this stunning photo. Suggested title: 'Electri-City'?
