[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
What appeared to be a UFO over the city last night was actually a large Blimp carrying the sign Metlife. As it moved away it looked rather unusual in the darkness.
Unsure what the Y-shaped building is but plan to take a closer look one day.

Hi Murray

Great capture. Glad you gave an explanation in your note otherwise I would have left wondering and pondering. :-)

Good exposure and DOF. TFS.


Good sharpness, metering, saturation; a good cityscape with the added interest of that blimp overhead. Well done!

Hi Murray

Good symmetry between the moon & artificial globe light partially obscured behind the high rise. Excellent sharpness & framing. Well done!

Hie Murray,,
It really looks like a UFO if you never explain it on the note. Sharp and vibrant colors.

Hi Murray,
You actually come in some very interesting places. Your lucky you can make interesting pictures of them too... Like the blue reflection in the building.
Well done my friend,

impresionante composición te felicito las luces bellas


Bonjour Muray
Excellente prise de vue de nuit.Netteté et exposition très bien paramétrées.
Bravo et bonne journée.

Hi Murray,
It was not even the blimp that caught my eye, but the reflections in the apartmentbuildings windows - That alone would have made a great picture!
A lovely capture of Shenyang by night.

Hi Murray, Good effort - I feel that perhaps a smaller apertue will have given you even more sharpness all across the image.

Still, a decent shot. best regards, Daniel.

There is that building you featured later Murray. Good night shot with lovely colour and detail. Some noise evident but not overpowering. TFS,

Many thanks for your comment on ‘Old and Grey’
