    Re: Some San Francisco Night Shots

    Hi again Ajith,

    I'd like to know the EXIF data for these.

    They all look nice in they're own right, but having several of the same view with different WB is a bit distracting - meaning I can't make up my mind which I like best

    Cheers,

    Terrific shots! I prefer #2 to #1, just because I've seen that exact scene, and fell in love with it

    I love San Franciso, must go back again soon

    Ajith,

    All of these are nice pictures. The first two have a nice silk feeling on the water.
    The last three are very sharp, which sometimes I have a difficulty to achieve.

    I agree with Dave, it would be better to provide EXIF data for these shots. For me, I like to know your exposure times for the first 2 pictures, and focal lengths for the last three.

    Hi Yan,
    I forgot to add some more details ..For shutter release I use the mirror-up option and while post processing I add 30% sharpness, also crop the pics a bit... hope I answered your questions.

    Regards
    Ajith

    Ajith,

    Those are pretty sharp and beautiful pictures. I think I like #2 more than #1.

    #1 seems to be a little too "warm" , but hey that's just me. The other shots of City Hall are just fantastically (if that's even a word) sharp.

    Thanks for sharing!
