The City @ Night in B+W

My color shot did not come out as I had hoped, so I thought I would give B&W a try. It is certainly a different perspective of night photography. =)

{P.S. The full-sized image looks better than the thumbnail.}

I checked the larger version, which is a pretty strong shot.

This image was probably a great candidate for some of that HDR work that everyone's been talking about, given that there is an area in the foreground that's a bit blown out. Five seconds is a great place to start for a shutterspeed on night shots like this.

I love this because it is so diffrent! Most night shots of a city have the same look, but Hawaii just looks cool at night. Sweet.

Very nice.. that full sized image is so much better than the thumbnail. I like the b/w treatment here. Nicely done!

I love this shot of Ala Moana. I have to admit that I have never seen the street that deserted. It must have been taken pretty late at night. Technically, the photo is excellent, with a good range of tones from bright white to black. Well done.

I think this works nicely as a b&w. Well done. :)

A bit blown out here and there, but the general picture is lovely.

Worth a second try!
