    Ok, maybe the titles mis-leading. How do you edit the title? Sorry.

    Nice shots! I like #1 better: I love the way the colors of the wheel peek through the lights of the trees. It appears tilted: maybe rotate it CW a bit?

    Cheers,

    Hi Steve: both great shots, I might crop just above the wheel in number one, but that's pretty subjective and not a biggy. Nice lighting in number 2.

    If you start a new post you should be able to type in the title for the post in the "Title" text box
    If you reply to a post and want to change the title - click the "Go Advanced" button at the bottom and then you will have the option to change the title in the "Title" text box. That's how I do it, there may be better or easier ways. I tend to do things the hard way, but it works.

    Yeah, i did notice it appearing titled, bare in mind i did take that picture without a tripod. (Have got one now).

    That was using the lighting around St Pauls Cathedral, i do have one of Westminster Abbey, but i don't think that came out too well.

    Hi, Steve;

    What do you use for post-processing? You can rotate it there. I normally use Photoshop, but I used ImageJ (which is free) to look at how much I would rotate your photo (looks like 1.5 deg CW), because I can do lots of analysis. ImageJ will do the rotation. The GIMP is also free, and will do rotations (and pretty much anything else you want).

    Cheers,
    Rick

    I wouldn't mind seeing it. By the way sorry about getting your name wrong in my previous post.

    No problem, and sure let me upload it.

    Rick;

    Funny you should mention "Gimp", as i do use it. Alright, it isn't exactly photoshop but it does the job well.

    I like 1, but I 'd like to see it much darker, so the sky goes almost completely black. Then, clone out the 3 bright blue lights at the top RHC. 2 is not as sharp as it should be, but considering it's hand held, not too bad.

    Mind if I give it a whirl?

    Steve: Sorry, I don't know what happened, but I missed this when you posted it. You may not like this as well as the first 2 but I'd consider this a keeper if it was mine. I love the lighting and colours, subject matter is pretty nice too. We don't have buildings like this in Canada, it was probably built before Canada existed.
