My other attempt on a night shot. We went for a nightout on the slopes of Antipolo, overlooking the city of Manila. The view was breathtaking and beautiful but i knew that its just a matter of getting the right settings.
I guess i need to learn more about the camera settings on this kind of shot. Critiques are welcomed.

-adjusted contrast
-sharpened a bit
-framed & signed

*i forgot to tilt the pic for the horizon. = (

Thanks for viewing, anyways.

Bonito resultado.

Exellent !! very nice work.

Hello Jowel, your night-results are very nice. I like it!

nice Jowel. ganda ng mood and colors medyo
tilted lang. you can use Adobe CS2 to adjust
the tilt.:) Thanks for sharing.


Nice nocturnal photo. I like the extra wide angle presented. Excellent lighting. I would straighten the horizon though.


This is a superb shot.

Great lighting, and view.

Once I saw a city like this, but was driving on the motorway, thus couldn't stop to take a pic.

On top of that, there was a low moon, just over the city, giving that extra warm orange tone over the town.

Never seen such a nice view (well apart on TL) :)


Nicely done, Jowel. Ganda ng pagkakalagay mo ng horizon sa composition mo. Well done on capturing the lights. Another experiment you can do is change the white balance of your camera to see what each will do to the colors of your image. :) Nasaan ka ngayon bro?

Hi Jowel... Very, very nice, a night shot, George

Good shot!
Very nicely done and great story.



Ganda nito bro, with a little adjustment sa pagka tilt, beats any postcard i've seen.


Beautiful. The framing works well for this image. Well done.

Hi Jowel,

I feel a bit dizzy when I look at this photo of manila, it looks so peaceful and a bit impersonal and it is interesting to see the megalopolis from the distance - congratulations !
