The Taking of Boston Dark as Night

Boston offers many photo ops for the local and travel photography enthusiast. There are plenty of historic landmarks and architectural marvels around. The skyline can be admired from many spots. One hot spot for Boston Skyline Photography is Memorial Drive in Cambridge, MA. I love this area because it easily allows adjusting on the go. The other night I photographed into the night. While the sky turned dark, the city lights provided an interesting contrast. The icing on the cake was a really calm Charles River that I haven't experienced in quite some time. The windless night and quiet waters made for an excellent skyline reflection. Aperture in this picture was set at f/11, providing an exposure time of 20 seconds at ISO200. During routine post processing I adjusted lighting, contrast and color saturation before removing imperfections and sharpening the final Boston skyline image of Dark as Night.

Good light and happy photo making!
