    This is a street light near the freight station....maybe I need a filter? It looks really cool in person.

    Hope you don't mind...added a little night fog and got rid of the sodium vapor light.

    Using Paintshop Pro I first sharpened the image then moved the lighting balance all the way up. Saved that pic and then using MGI Photsuite added the fog. Tried to dim the light too but couldn't figure that one out...bet Shamus will do it!!!...he's a pro!! :)

    Looks real good. Maybe a little light in the window might really set the scene.

    Hi aartwmich, I liked the photo around the other way, Ooops.

    Looks like you took the photo just using the light from the street lamp to light the scene. This kind of light is not really good enough for a colour print with a 35mm camera, on the other hand, if you are using a Digital camera and you can set it for incandescent lighting then you should be able to get a fair representation, colour wise. If your camera is digital but hasn’t got that facility, just get hold of an 80B or 80A filter and hold it in front of the lens when taking the photo.

    On my website and here in the gauge is an article I wrote on Model Photography.

    Cheers

    Well Vic..looks like he did about the same as you 'cept he mirrored it vertically and didn't shrink it.

    So what am I not seeing??
