    Took this shot at the beginning of the month when i was 'studying' at the university but haven't posted it until now as I thought I may take a nice one back home in Edinburgh but unfortunately have not had a decent opportunity.

    It is the main campus of the university taken just after sunset from across the brayford pool. I had wanted to get smoother more reflective water but we didn't have a still day for 2weeks so had to make do with the blurring from a long exposure.

    Straight out of the camera except for a crop in the y-direction and a resize.

    Exif:
    Camera - Olympus C770
    Aperture F8.0
    Exposure 15s
    Focal legnth 6.5mm

    I like the diagonal gradient in the sky in this one - and I don't think the reflections have suffered too much from the adverse weather conditions (you should have tried the first half of December in Edinburgh!).

    Yeah I heard it wasn't too great up there!! However Lincoln wasn't much better and I had to shelter my tripod from the thundering winds with my body to stop it wobbling!! Maybe that means I need a better tripod?
