San Francisco City Hall at Night

How do you take a shot like this? Was your camera hand-held? This is wonderful!
Evelyn, This came out a little too dark but it is still okay. Yes, hand held, I don't have a tripod and I zoomed in on the dome with the sculpture in the foreground. Thanks so much :)

Interesting, have you had any photography classes Jo? You photos are becoming very intriguing.

I think it's stunning!! The juxtaposition between the dome and the sculpture is amazing.
Self, No I've never taken any classes though the thought has entered my mind. Lately I am beginning to really enjoy different architecture. So seeing City Hall at night, which I normally do not see was a treat. Thank you.

Cheryl, Thanks so much :)

very crisp and clear for a night shot Jo, the concept is also very interesting. love it.
betchai, thanks, I am still experimenting with shutter speeds etc... It's always a challenge but fun :)

Very nice shot. I'm horrible at getting good low light pictures.
Kass said…
That's quite magical.

Night shots are always a surprise as to how they will turn out. That makes it a mystery.
Ann, it is really difficult at least for me.

Kass, Thanks, it's different :)

Shark, I took shots with flash and without flash and the flash shots came out terrible. I did have it set to a high ISO. It's fun just experimenting.

A very interesting shot, I think you used the available light quite well.

RE: your last comment response, experimenting is always fun. Classes are okay but learning on your own and creating your own style is far more rewarding.
Squirrel, thanks for that. I've been toying around with the idea of taking classes but to be honest I don't have the money or time. So, I think taking your advice is the way to go. Thank you.

I really spoiled by this mute coloured finished San Francisco City Hall at Night!
It's great to be made as a postcard!

Brilliant idea, love the angle and close up here!
The luxury is when my attention first fall on the charming majestical San Francisco City Hall tower, then my attention slight shift to the right and then back to the tower itself.

Yes, the attention is still on the tower itself. You are so clever using a metaphor as a compliment to the tower!

I love this shot so much!
Thumb up A+++!
