Managed to get to visit the castle keep in Newcastle on an arranged evening shoot.  First time trying to shoot street scenes at night.  It was a bit windy and cold on the roof.

Nice set.

I like the 'ghost train' the long exposure has given in the first - would have been even better if it had been coming in / leaving via the bottom left, but you just can't rely on the trains these days :lol:

You've also controlled the exposure well on the last one, getting a nice balance with the whole tower illuminated and minimal blow-outs from the lights.

My picks would be the last one and the second one.  I agree with Jonathan on the lighting of the last one.....john
