**Before After

**Charley Andrisano submitted this photo he took of the New York City Skyline. He used a Canon 20D with a Sigma 10-20mm lens on a tripod with an ISO of 100 and set the camera to aperture priority. In situations like this, I would say try shutter priority. If you have a tripod than you can set the camera to a slow shutter speed to capture more detail in the dark areas. Then you won’t need to make major adjustments later and won’t have too much noise in the shadows. Also, when composing a photo like this, remember the rule of thirds and don’t place the horizon line in the center. Consider cropping for a well composed photo.
