OUR PRO’S ver­dict

The best night shots are usu­ally to be found 15-20 min­utes af­ter sun­set, be­cause the sky will have rich, blue tones, even on an over­cast night, so it will con­trast re­ally well with the warm tones of street­lamps and flood­lit build­ings. There may still be light in the sky for a while af­ter this, but it de­pends the weather con­di­tions, the time of year and the lat­i­tude – higher lat­i­tudes give you a lit­tle more lee­way. It’s the colour of the sky that makes this shot of the Lowry Cen­tre my favourite from the whole ses­sion. The com­po­si­tion is re­ally ef­fec­tive, too, thanks to the strong con­verg­ing lines. Ross brought along his own 18-200mm lens, but used the Sigma 10-20mm su­per-wide-an­gle lens we brought along here, and the ex­ag­ger­ated per­spec­tives this lens gives helps make the shot work.
