Night Skyline - How Dark?
Feb 11, 2013

I'm vacationing in San Diego for the month of February.  Prior to coming here, one of the shots I planned was a night time shot of the cityscape taken across the water from Coronado Island.  I was able to get those shots last night.  Never having tried this, I found I had to dial in some negative EC in order to get the photos dark enough.  Now, I'm trying to figure out how dark a shot like this should be.  I don't think the first one is quite dark enough, so I darkened it in Lightroom using the graduation tool.  I like the way the last one looks pretty much out of the camera?

Your thoughts would be appreciated.
