Re: Going back tomorrow - How can I do better? - Night shots

As some others have said, I would try a blue hour shot without the polariser. If you time it right, you can also get a nice sky reflection on the water, which would brighten your shot. I don't know if you shot this RAW, but have you adjusted the highlights in processing? The red color also looks a bit over saturated. Reducing the red saturation should bring back some details.

You did a good job on the HDR processing of the second shot. HDR shots with dark shadows can sometimes result in lots of noise, but I don't see that here.

I agree with an earlier comment about the Voigtlander lenses and their rendering of bright night lights. The Nokton lenses make starbursts that auto focus lenses in M43 cannot replicate.
