Hi! This is my first attempt at night long exposure photography. Any comments and suggestions are welcome.

Image

Brisbane City, Story Bridge.

Shot using Nikon D5000, Nkkor 18-55mm, Tripod

EXIF Data:

Exposure : 30 sec
Aperture : f/14.0
Focal Length: 28 mm
ISO : 100

Rookie mistake : Shot with white balance set to Daylight :(

Corrected in Photoshop.

Well, as long as you use RAW, WB is easily corrected. I mess up my WB all the time.

Pretty nice, I like the colors, good job :)

And as lagnificent said, as long as you shoot in RAW, it's pretty easy to correct white balance, don't worry too much about it, I've shot a complete set in broad sunlight using my WB in tungsten, but I could correct it easily.

Thanks pierovera.

It's amazing what we can do with photoshop these days.

Do you guys think the photo looks artificial? I like it, but.. it's not what I expected. I need more practice anyway.

Not at all, doesn't look artificial to me, though you might tweak it to whatever you'd like it to look like, I do that sometimes.

Nice one! I like it, though the sky feels too empty, not much going on, to have included so much of it. That's just personal opinion though, but I'd prefer if you had cut a bit of the sky and rather included more of the water. The shot is great anyways, I like it, good job :)
