RAW, ISO 100, Lens 17-55 at 17 mm, Manual Mode, Pattern Metering, white balance set to cloudy, exposure set at f/22 for 20 seconds off a tripod. I had noticed these towers several times, but never really thought about photographing them until Jim gave us the assignment of photographing cities at twilight. The towers are not very interesting in daylight and I do not take many night photographs. In setting-up the photograph, the biggest challenge was keeping the various street lights out of the photograph. I composed the photograph so that a couple of the street lights were hidden by the towers and another had to be cropped from the final scene. I set the white balance to cloudy so that the lights would produce a nice warm tone.
