Gorgeous view and atmosphere Nina!! This would look great, not only in a dark room, yet on a black desktop background.. You should set this as your desktop It's a really gorgeous view. It has a really nice and calming effect on me as a viewer..
I also have a photo that I had just taken the other day.. that your photo reminds me of.. not of a street view however. It is of a street lamp, yet looking up, towards the sky, on a street that surrounds the High School I attended. I live in the historical district and the lamps are original.. from way back.. I used to really love viewing the lamps that surround the school. Because there were also many trees that line that street at the edge of the sidewalk. I want to get a shot of this, with perspective.. with both the street lamps and trees lined at the edge of the sidewalk.. yet I need to go there when it's near dark and when there are no cars are around.
I love your photography, equally as much, as your Manips and Digital paintings Nina.. Your photography is equally inspiring. You also come up with much better names than I do.. ;d LoL.. You've always had such great concept. I am just starting out with my photography, and.. not using a professional camera.. not yet anyway.. hopefully very soon though, I will have a really nice DSLR.. and some lenses to match.
I have a conventional camera as well, that I found in my deceased fathers belongings. It is an old Pentax film camera.. it has so many lenses and filters.. I took it out to the cemetery and took some shots of swans on the lake and the atmosphere.. I had the film developed.. yet.. some turned out great, and others did not.
I am seriously am considering, to take up some photography classes.. Is there anything, specific classes that you might recommend taking as a beginner?
