Sincinnati by KrisVlad Sincinnati by KrisVlad
Cincinnati has the coolest skyline out of all the major cities in Ohio.

This shot was taken with a polarizer to reduce glare and a neutral density filter to allow a longer exposure (1 minute).

Spectacular shot!

Lost in the city of angels
Down in the comfort of strangers
I found myself in the fire-burned hills
In the land of a billion lights. . . 
(city of angels-30 seconds to mars)

Thank you! I remember that shot. It required a ton of editing.

Man, I like these square photos. Most photos have either portrait or landscape dimensions (as far as I'm aware; I won't claim to be any kind of a photography connoisseur), but these have neither, which is refreshing. They're also very nice, imo. This is probably my favourite, because it looks a little unreal and has nice colouring (that diagonal streak, too), but I also really like 'Lovers' and 'Sync'.

Beautiful, the long exposure looks fantastic, and the colors are vivid and gorgeous! The focus is lovely as well, and the details you captured on the buildings is just stunning.

Gorgeous shot! :D
Have you ever shot in Cleveland or Columbus? Just out of curiosity.

I've never been to Cleveland. I went to Columbus just once to see the Transyberian Orchestra. I didn't stick around to shoot afterwards though.

I think this red effect only works well with black and white images.

That would make sense. I wouldn't know much about that kind of editing, so...^^;

Thank you very much! Do you like the red effect or is it too much? I already edited the heck out of it to begin with.

Yes, I like the red effect in it! I think if you took it out it might not jump out as much, plus the fact you put the sin in the title and the red color = the sins of the city. I know, lol, that probably doesn't make any sense. I would leave it in:)

What a great skyline :) The reflection of the lights in the water is also really cool. (I'm just an amateur when it comes to photography--did the longer exposure give that look to the lights?)

Thank you! The longer exposure made the water really smooth, but I smoothed it out even more with the smudge tool in Photoshop.
