The lights of the bridge and city had come on, and it was getting cold. I stayed for a last photo of the sunset, knowing that using digital post-processing I could render a far greater exposure range than ever would have been possible with film!
Meta info: Nikon D70 Raw capture, AF-S VR-Zoom-Nikkor 70-200mm f/2.8G IF-ED at 86mm (appx 129mm 35mm equivalence); tripod with VR (vibration reduction) turned off.
Exif: ISO 200, 0.3 second, f/2.8.
Focus: Automatic, at infinity.
Post: The Raw file for the photo was processed twice (once for the foreground lights and once for the bridge and sky) and combined using a layer mask and a gradient. Once the layers were combined, I added a dark blue gradient to the sky of this image and performed routine level adjustments and sharpening.
