    The Cloister

    I have just tried my hand at long exposure night shots at the University of Queensland which has a cloister surrounded by beautiful sandstone colonnades. Both shots were taken with settings of 10s, f/13, ISO 100, manual focus.

    Thanks for viewing - let me know what you think pls.

    Cheers Dave

    Try some different "in-camera" or PP white balance settings. Suspect those are quartz halogen lights, and thus (IMO) your color balance is a bit too much to the warm side.

    Thanks for commenting Chris. I did play around with white balance and hue a bit during pp and ended up warming the images just a bit - but not much. What you see isn't that much different to how it was.

    Cheers Dave

    I think they'll be sodium lights.

    Have a look at this thread and the "here and here" links in the second post for even more advice.

    Cheers,

    Thanks Dave. I'll have a look at those threads.

    The other issue that I have with these shots is that they seem to have lost a lot of clarity and sharpness as a result of the uploading process. I wonder if this is due to heavy compression ? The file I uploaded to Keep and Share was 1500x866 with a file size of 976KB. The file appearing on CiC via the link to Keep and Share is 1352X780 with a size of 160KB.

    Cheers Dave
