Here is another night photo I made (yes ‘made’ is how professional photographers like to say ‘took’, so I’ve read). This was also shot with the Nikon D40 with 18-55mm kit lens. The setting this time were ISO 200, 18mm, F4.5 @ 30 seconds.
Adjustments I made in Aperture 3.0 were straightening, crop, definition, vibrancy and shadows.
Here is the photo as shot from the camera.
