Auckland @ Night – Collabor:10

The other night I decided to try and capture Auckland from Bayswater Marina. The evening was cloudy, but it was warm, and the air was clear. I find these kind of shots are challenging to find the exposure that is just right. Even then, i’m not convinced I actually got it right in this shot. It is hard to find the balance between over-exposing the brighter areas of the photo versus under exposing the darker areas. In this photo I leaned more towards a higher exposure, clipping some of the highlights, but retaining the detail in the darker ares such as building outlines.
I also discovered that I have way too many pixels that run hot on long exposures for my liking.

Shutter 8.0s; f/9, ISO 200, 28mm.
