Not a Night Photographer
I enjoy night photography but it's not something I would consider my self all that good at. Over the past year I got a sony A7iii which has greatly improved my ability and therefore my willingness to try more night photography (my old camera was a Nikon d3200. It struggled at night.) I was at a wedding a few months ago at this marina and decided to try to get some cool night shots while I was there.
The first photo is a vertical panorama made from somewhere around 9 or 10 images and the 2nd photo is just a single frame. I was really trying to incorporate the reflection as well as the night sky. In the pano photo the stars aren't quite as sharp probably due to the pano stitching. I do like the wider angle of it though. In the 2nd photo I think the sky is a little blue and I could probably tweak it a bit.
Overall I'm pretty happy with these though. I wish there were less clouds in the sky but I think the first time using the Sony at night was a success. Much better results than my nikon (which should really go w/o saying as the camera's are worlds apart). But I would like any constructive feedback that anyone has. Are these portfolio worthy or just for the gram ;-)
And before someone points it out I think the dock lights coming from the left are distracting but there was nothing I could do about them. I tried my best to keep them out of the frame as much as I could and cropped as much as I felt comfortable with in post to keep the lights to a minimum. There not as noticeable in the pano but they do bug me in the single shot.
