    I like this a lot. You should try another one a little earlier to get some color in the sky as well.

    Very nice, clean & smooth. Looks almost like a theater set.

    I was suprised too. And it was taken with the kit lens. I did use the in camera noise reduction, added very little saturation. I could not add sharpness because it made the Hyatt look really weird.

    Sorry, didn't see the new posts. I used PS CS2 I think it is. If by outfit you mean camera, etc... I used a Canon Digital Rebel XT with the 18-55mm Kit lens.

    Your sharpening turned out like mine, a little over-bearing. The lines are too defined and it just does not look right to me.

    I attached a wallpaper sized one I thinkthe original might be too big.

    Almost looks like a model/movie set. You almost expect Godzirra to wade in from stage left! :supergrin:

    That is a great shot! :)

    Is there any way to get rid of the extra light that comes out of the lights on my pics?

    Nipper, yours looks like it was taken just after dusk is that why your lights look normal?

    could be.

    I like to do my night shots during that little window of time when its getting dark, but the sky still has some color to it.
