    Harry, be careful not to overexpose with these long exposures. You also have to be careful with WB. Lovely to do this kind of photography. Takes a bit of practice but very rewarding.

    All three are very interesting. #1 stands out and if you have others in this series it would be nice to see them, also show us a few failures with settings included.

    Thanks Andre, will experiment more with ur suggestions, cheers

    Just a footnote with these, there were two big light towers above the pool hence the brightness on these, I should have compensated more for this

    Thanks John, will post some more soon with settings, I must admit I didn't adjust my white balance or exposure for these, kept at f8 for all of them

    Very nice, I don't think you would have been able to contain the lights in the windows at any other ISO level.

    Thanks John, yes he light were quite challenging from both sides but sometimes I think they can add a bit to it, might play around with these in Lightroom, my brother gave me some tips for using it over the weekend as I only had been using the Canon software, DPP, for editing, Lightroom will help for some of these tricky areas,

    Regards
