    I like the looking down photo, you musy have used a tripod and used a slow shutter speed to get such great exposure at night, good job

    I did indeed use a tripod! I actually tilted it so far down untill I was affraid that it would fall over.... LOL. I think that one was taken with a 20 second exposure.

    Here are some more from another night.

    nice shots...

    the first portrait would have been way better if you used a larger aperature to minimize your depth of field.

    not sure what lens you're using, but i really like the nikkor 50mm 1.2 & 85mm 1.4.

    that portrait would also be sweet in b&w.

    thanks for posting.

    Birmingham is a nice city. I have lived here all my life and I still enjoy it. I really like Atlanta as well.

    Yeah, I tried setting the F-stop as low as I could. I think my lense would only let me go down to F-5.6 for some reason. I usually try to get it as low as I can before I take a close up shot.

    I am just using the 18-55mm lens that came with my Canon Rebel XTi.

    I have been thinking about messing around with some black & white techniques since I shoot in RAW. What are some good tips to really make black & white shots "pop" and look vivid?
