    Night time long exposure first try

    I love the lighting on this church, especially the bell tower. This is straight out of the camera. I think I should have payed more attention to composition and not cut off the top of the tower for one. I plan to crop out the basketball hoop on the right as well. Comments, critiques and suggestions please.

    Nice first try.

    I would try a closer crop or cropping ratio to remove the distractions from the right.
    Also you might be able to get better definition of the church, inside the bell tower and the spire by going smaller on the aperture and increasing the exposure time by a corresponding amount.
