Baltimore's Inner Harbor Night Lights / by Leslie

We've got a gorgeous view of the Inner Harbor off our balcony at the Ritz-Carlton. At night, we can see these beautiful city lights, reflecting off the water with the occasional boat streaking by. During the day we see all kinds of boats sail by and if I was here longer, I would set up my camera one day to capture every single one. 

I've been wanting to try night photography with some long exposures, but at home out in the middle of the woods, I don't have a lot to work with. Here, the buildings across the Harbor and the water are perfect for capturing a dynamic night scene.
