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…”

Thanks to Patti for hosting this week’s Lens Artists Photo Challenge (#29). Please visit her stunning cityscape series. We are so looking forward to seeing your cityscape photos; they can be near your home or thousands of miles away. Ann-Christine will host next week’s Lens Artists challenge.

Thank you for visiting!

  1. Hi, Amy. What a gorgeous gallery! (I arrived here later than I wanted to this week. My apologies!) Your night shots are stunning and remind me how badly I want to get a lens that works in low light. Your Lumix shot is very crisp. Great clarity. I’m glad you included Miami–another great city.

  6. They are all great but I especially enjoyed the night photos of London since it brought back memories of our stay there last year. I have photos of the Shard during the day but none at night so thank you.
