Night Photography

Night adds an interesting dimension to photography. While the details of buildings and other objects can become obscured in a sky with little or no natural light, other manmade structures stand out amid an array of bright electric lights.

Other elements can also add aesthetic appeal to night photography as well. Here are some outstanding photos that combine architecture and water with artificial light and darkness:
