Charleston at Night (part 1)

by Daniel June. 03, 2007 3245 views

Downtown Charleston is one of the most picturesque places I've ever visited, in some ways on a par with Prague as far as unique architecture but also with an interesting history. Living here is a dream come true if you own a camera.

I've been meaning to take more photos of the old city but I never get the right setting. Day-time is too full of people and traffic and I work most nights. Weekend nights I am photographing for so that I don't have time/energy to take cityscapes with long exposures.

So I give you these two shots, one of an independent pharmacy and one of a George Washington statue. I was packing up and heading home when I stumbled on the statue. Apparently Washington had some ties to Charleston, though I'm sure the city plays it up into something bigger than it was.

Shamana, thanks for the tips! I'll kick up the exposure setting in Bibble and then try converting to grayscale and see how it looks. I was pretty disappointed at myself for only coming home with two workable photos... (hence the 'part 1'). As for unsharp mask, I nearly forgot about that tool since I use Gimp only for cropping and resizing now

danny, thanks for the comment. I love York but never been to Beverly. The cathedral looked similar in style and I saw you are from the north so I assumed...
