Evening and Night Time Shots of Calgary, Canada
« on: June 25, 2012, 04:10:59 AM »
Hi Everyone,

I've been a lurker for some time here on Canon Rumors and I've finally decided to join and contribute to the forum. Here's some pictures I took with my 7D earlier this month of my beautiful city, Calgary.

Here's a few more. The first four were taken with an EF 70-200L f/2.8. These four were taken with an EF 24-105L.

I have done some post processing on these four shots, obviously. However, the silhouette shots were only straightened and cropped. The sky was really like that!

Nice, the silhouette shots are interesting. What do you use to get the 'sparkly' stars on the  lights? Is it a lightroom filter like the one in Topaz or you are actually using glass to get it?

Nice shots. I love YYC this time of year- whenever I'm in town I walk up to the Eau Claire Y for a workout then have subs from Thi Thi's.  I've passed overhead 6 times this week- one of those contrails is probably me.  ;)
Don't take my advice. Don't even take my advice not to take my advice.

You can get that effect by simply using a narrow aperture. No need for PP or starlight filters.

Yup, it was a narrow aperture and a long shutter speed.

It's definitely a beautiful city this time of year, for sure. Eau Claire is a great place to hang out too :)
