    Yeah, I got a proper Camera as well as my phone one that does better long exposures.

    Would be great to go up those

    cranes.

    Got some ones, I'll upload

    later.

    Want to resize them to about 800 x 600 maximum.

    The Pixels show too much when there too big.

    Yes, resizing the pictures makes them look a bit better - I go

    right down to 480 x 319 as it makes them easier to see on smaller monitors.

    Managed to get some photos today at Princes Dock - I'll upload them

    later. Probably the first time I've ever taken any in the twilight - got some interesting effects, as it's dark with lights on, but the sky is still

    prominent...

    I feel like killing when I see so many purple pixels on the pictures despite

    the camera I'm using to be good one.

    I did the Thistle Hotel again and get great results on taking that every

    time.

    Max, what camera have you got? Can you

    alter the exposure time and ISO? Having a large ISO (800 or above) can cause 'noise' in your pictures. Not so obvious when you resize them, but it can be

    annoying!

    I tried some HDR manipulation yesterday. I took five shots of the same scene at five different exposures and used Photomatrix (visit

    hdrsoft.com). Came out all right, but I think I need to investigate 'tone mapping' to get better

    effects...


    The rest are exposures of around 3 seconds,

    with an aperture of about F9 - F11. They're ok, but I wanted the sky a bit lighter - I think I'm going to go back soon and try each one with the same

    effects as the first pictures above, and see how they come

    out.

    Spot on Snappel, many thanks. I'll try night shots with my new camera

    soon.

    Kev - your camera has a noise

    reduction feature. Try taking some pictures on ISO 1000. Higher ISO means the camera (or film) is more sensitive to the light, so at night this can help

    produce brighter images.

    I think the best thing to do is go out for an evening and play around with the camera settings - it's what I tend to do, and

    then try and remember what works best.

    That camera is knackered, I (my son) damaged it a few weeks

    ago, he dropped it onto the lens whilst he had turned it on, poor lad wants to be like his dad, he's 3.

    Anyway, the focus wouldn't work, the zoom was

    broke and over the weekend, it stoppped the starting up process so the lenses don't even come out of the camera body and it shuts down, so back to comet it

    went.

    Cheeky woman behind the service desk was like, 'oh eye, which cowboy has dropped this' and I denied I had ever dropped it. So I won't pay for it

    to be fixed and it looks like they won't do it for nothing.

    So a new camera should be on its way.

    If

    you're looking to buy a new camera, I rate the Fuji Finepix S5600. Has lots of good features, and allows you to play with aperture and shutter speed

    settings, up to about 15 seconds which allows for good night stuff. Only 150 now at John Lewis, which is about half what I paid a couple of years ago for

    the old S5000 which was far insuperior. Only downside is that it isn't a compact, and so is more cumbersome to carry about.

    Snappel, are these pics HDR? If

    so they are fantastic! Most of the HDR pics I've seen until these are crap, in my humble opinion. You've converted me!

    Only the first one Dave - the rest my camera did the work! I just set it to a 3s/F10

    and pressed the shutter button! Pete Carr is the man for HDR, his stuff is awesome. I think I need to invest in some proper software...

    Kev - that

    looks just as good, if not better. You've got a good range of features there, and it's not too big and bulky. Nice to see you can do 30 second exposures -

    lots of fun with light trails, etc, to be had there!

    Sometimes HDR photos don't look that strange - others are a bit bizarre. It's something I want to spend more time playing about with. None of the ones

    I've tried in full daylight have worked very well.

    They all look like somebody's been farting around

    with a Photoshop plugin. Snappel, your photos are boss anyway mate.

    My Iso doesn't go higher than 400.

    It's a Fujifilm Finepix 6800zoom.

    Think I'll get a new one

    around Christmas, but this ones great.

    Buying a tripod for it tomorrow.

    A good tripod is the Velbon CX Mini, available in Jessops for 19.99.

    Quite small and very durable.

    Your camera's not bad Max. If you sit the camera on a tripod and set the shutter speed to 3" (3 seconds), then you'll

    get the maximum amount of light into the camera for the photo. If it has a manual ('M') mode, you should be able to change the apertures as well, right

    down to F2.8, which means even more light into the camera.

    Looks good,

    photograph it while you can! Not how long it's going to be there for - anyone know? Also, I spotted ladders going up to the centre of the wheel, but I think

    I might get told off if I try that...

    Got my tripod ready for tomorrow and maybe Friday night.:PDT_Aliboronz_24

    Got manual and Auto settings.

    Tested it and

    the picture was great even though it was inside my house.

    I was in town today and noticed some people taking pictures of outside the Paradise street

    development on Hanover street while on me bike.

    Seems like my tripod helped and with a bit of Photoshop resizing and smart sharpening magic too.
