    Love the clouds in clyndrical formation, the colors are great, and the ligthing is bold and beautiful. The only thing that leaves me wanting, is there is no horizion line, or sense of connection. When it comes to lightining, you take what you can get! Well done!

    OK, my comment is a little different. I prefer this photo without the "standard" stuff. In fact, my only comment would be to clone out that triangular building part in the upper right area. Other than that, I like it just the way it is.

    Saleh,
    Do your street lights have this green cast I see in your photos.
    I am assuming yes but was just wondering, in a lot of your night
    shots there is definitely a greeenish hue to the street lights.

    You are using auto white balance. Look in your manual for taking a preset white balance using a gray card (Of course, you'll need to get a gray card). I played with the jpg a little in capture.



    I didn't get all the green out of the lights, but the towers are closer in color to your earlier daytime shot.

    The green cast comes from Mercury lighting. This type of lighting looks bluish white to us, but shows up green in pictures. This type of lighting is hard to match in terms of whitebalance, so its difficult to get rid of the cast in camera.
    Furthermore, the towers seem to be lit by a different type of lighting, this makes it even harder since the whitebalance of the towers is different. If you want to get rid of the green cast you should process the different parts of your image separatly (using layers in Photoshop or using the selection tools or control points in Capture NX)

    that's correct white balanced on auto mode i'll try to take another pictures and i'll play with the setting also i just buy polarizing filters and lens hood so it would help me because most of the times its sunny here, do i need to buy another filter ?
