Had an evening session with my camera club tonight which gave us a chance at some local night photography. Quite chilly but came away with some shots I was happy with.

Some nice images Ryan. Just one slight crit in #1 that little dot of light just above the smaller unlit tower does draw my eye a little

Thanks all!

They call those dots of light stars Brian... ;) I agree though a bit distracting when its the only one visible in the scene. I also decided to try and alleviate the light pollution in #1 & 3 as the reddish tones were bugging me a bit.
#1 Colour corrected(ish)

One more shot earlier in the evening I forgot about when processing last night.
A bit tight in the frame but I had trees to either side of me which were impeding into the shot I had to crop and clone out.

Thanks Don, not often I take the camera out at night as it suffers from real bad noise in low light. Someone suggested I tried Topaz labs denoise AI which I used on all of these and I am quite pleased with the results.

Lovely set there - first is a little too sharp for my liking but love the lighting/exposure settings on all of them

I like your second image in post #1 …. it appeals to me very much, one I would be framing if it were my image.

Thanks guys, think you might be right with the sharpness on #1 Snips.
Paul, I really wish I had gotten a shot of #2's pov but with a higher aperture to refine the starbursts a bit, but that one was my favorite shot of the evening.
