    well both you and alchy jump into the deepend with nightime photography - brave (it was ages before I did any nightwork!)
    its a very tricky time to work since you have little light to play with - I do think that I see an eye for creativity in your shots - especailly this on:
    http://i260.photobucket.com/albums/ii14/sevixeini/cityy/DSC_0207.jpg?t=1236553436

    but I think you are being held back by inexperience with the camera - certainly nothing to worry about we all start somewhere :)

    its tricky to critiqu save to say that tripods and longer exposures (slow shutter speeds) are often used for this sort of work - that way you don't have to use a high aperture and get lots of noise in the original shot.

    I know I really need a tripod! But yeah you are right! Its hard for me to take a decent shot at daylight....at night is impossible...but I can saw so many beautiful pictures around me that night so I couldnt ignore them....well you cant see them now but...you could imagine them..?maybe..?

    Anyway I have some landscape ones! At daylight! So I will post them as well! Sometime soon!

    All are really cool, but two and five are my favorite.

    Thanx :)

    I really like 5 and 7. 5 stands out for sure. 7 is kind of magical and mysterious. I know that building behind is probably apartments or something else modern, but to me it could almost be an ancient temple.. :)
