Good evening,

My name is Peter Sawyer and I write on behalf of Phototuts+ ([link])

I would like to feature this image in an article I am currently writing about long exposure photography.
A link to the image, and the name of the piece would be given in the article.

Please let me know if you are ok with this ASAP.

Thanks Peter

WOW! I haven't learned to do the long exposure thing yet. Any tips?

it is alot of fun best to go somewhere that has alot of city lights reflecting on water, also use a tripod and a remote, try at different exposures start at 30 seconds, 20 seconds, 10 seconds and see what works the best

I'll have to try that. Thanks!

Hi, Just wondering how you meter for these night scenes, do you meter for the whole area or spot meter the lights, or?????

You do excel at the evening night shots and when the summer does come here, I going to have a go myself.

thanks alot

what i do is i set my camera up on my tripod, set my camera to shutter priority mode then I put the shutter speed for 30 or 20 seconds when it is dark, sometimes i use flash and i use a wireless remote so i do not move the camera, you can try it at different shutter speeds depending on how light or dark it is
