An Evening in Boston

I made the image above from the top of a parking garage near Boston’s New England Aquarium. It was made with my Canon camera.

I’d bought a new iPhone app called NightMode for low-light pictures and decided to make the same image with the app. I had some issues with the app when it got darker but it may be due to my not fully understanding how to use it. The NightMode image is below.

How do you think the two images compare?

    I like both but prefer the second, softer image. At night we really don’t see with clarity. Enjoy what’s left of the weekend. πŸ™‹β€β™‚οΈ

    I prefer the sky in the upper image, but the detail in the dark areas in the lower image is much clearer. The upper image is the better for enhancing the mood of the evening.

    I like the second photo better. It’s more subdued. The first one reminds of those lightbulbs that when you turn them on, they make me squint. You know what I mean? The second photo is an, ‘ah, that’s nice’ kind of photo, for me.

    For me the second one is the best (most clear and more detail) – The sky in the first one is better but don’t know if your phone can compensate this.

      Thank you. I’m not sure why the second one is more clear. Perhaps if I pushed the clarity a bit in post processing on the first one it would be better.
