Good Evening,

I was leaving work today when I noticed how cool the street light looked with the sky still lit by the last faint bit of sunlight giving it a truly awesome feel that I, sadly, was unable to really capture properly. Frankly, if I would have packed my tripod I would have been able to go with a super slow shutter speed and low ISO to give a wider dynamic range while also making the clouds silky smooth which, in my opinion, would have been a very nice effect. Moral of the story? A tripod is always better for night shooting then hand-held!

I bumped the brightness up a decent amount in post to take advantage of the wider dynamic range of RAW and then hit it hard with noise reduction to remove all the extra noise that came from brightening up a dark shot like this.

God Bless,
~Josiah
