1 Find a re­flec­tion Look for an un­usual an­gle for your ab­stract im­age. Re­flec­tions can be great, as the long ex­po­sures nec­es­sary at night cause the wa­ter to blur, cre­at­ing smudges of dif­fer­ent coloured light. A zoom lens comes in handy here, as you can go in closer to fo­cus on one thing and ex­clude all the recog­nis­able de­tails.

2 Flip the im­age Post-pro­cess­ing can add to the mys­tery of the im­age. Here we ro­tated the frame to turn the re­flec­tion up­right. Abobe’s Cam­era Raw plug-in is ideal for ed­its like this, and it also has another fea­ture that is in­valu­able for cor­rect­ing ver­ti­cal lines your night-time ar­chi­tec­tural images – the Up­right com­mand.
