This is what it’s all about, isn’t it? Artists are supposed to stretch the limits of their abilities and not sit complacently in their comfort zone. I love that you planned the night shoot adventure and took along a photographer companion with the intent of shooting the city and waterfront.

Long exposures can be tricky. You can’t rely on the light sensor or the program modes in the camera. In this photograph, you have captured a beautiful angle of the city of Perth as night has fallen. The crop is well thought out. I suspect you did not trim the original image much. There is a sizeable area of darkness in the lower third of the image but it is nicely bordered by the twinkling lights of the structure in the corner.

The colors are vibrant. Your image is sharp. The ribbons of light from the streets and highways are just as they should be – evidence that a city never really sleeps.

“Citadel” is a marvelous piece. If you hadn’t mentioned that you were new to this genre of cityscape photography no one would be the wiser. Check out the reflection of the city lights in the cloud cover above . . . well done!

The only thing that bothers me about this photograph is the very large bright light emanating from the area of darkness to the left. It pulls my eye from the true focal point of the city and makes me wonder, “What the heck is that?” It’s a necessary distraction though. And you were correct in leaving it in. After all, this image is a time capsule, a record, a moment in time.
What do you think?
