Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #29: Cityscapes

For this week’s Lens-Artists Photo Challenge, Patti asks us to share “a cityscape of one city or several cities with populations in the thousands or millions.”

I find cityscapes at night is fascinating, but I don’t get to practice night photography often at all. I know this much–long shutter speed and a tripod are needed to get sharp night photos. Since I don’t have a habit of bringing a tripod when I travel, so when I do, I set high ISO and a longer shutter speed that I can handhold my camera, and then hope to get a good result.

It is hard to resist taking night photos in London:

The one below was taken from the London Tower Bridge:

Beautiful cityscape of San Fransco:


Cityscape of Miami:

Last but not least, New York, New York! This one was captured with my Panasonic Lumix, a mirrorless camera:

I love how Patti describes why she enjoys cities. “All these cities have their own personalities, quirks, weaknesses, and strengths. I enjoy spending time in them because of their architecture, their physical beauty, their history, their harbors, their people, and their food…”
