Re: technique help?

If you mean the converging verticals then an ultra wide angle lens will achieve that. If you mean the overall exposure then I would suggest a tripod and longer exposures, or is it something else?

Thanks stepheno, all of the above. I'm off to a christmas market in Brussels soon and there may be some opportunity to take some snaps. although going to struggle because i only have one lense a 28-300.

Thanks Martin

Re: technique help?

we are just back from Portugal and my partner only took his 28 - 300 L and did rather well with it; obviously you wont achieve the above results but you should get some great shots

If I remember correctly you ae using a bridge camera. You can buy converter lenses that fit over the existing lens to give a wider angle. They are not ideal in that the quality will probably suffer a bit, but it might be a cheap option to give this sort of photography a go. I'm sure that Fuji make a wide angle lens that attaches to the existing lens, but there are third party makes too.

Raynox have a good reputation

Raynox conversion lens and accessories for Fujifilm S9600, S9500, S9100, S9000, S6500fd, S6000fd Digital Cameras

and there are several different ones listed here

Accessories Fuji FinePix S9600

This one looks cheap

iConcepts 0.45x High Definition Wide Angle Conversion Lens for Fujifilm Finepix S9600

A lot of these lenses come as a set - wide angle + telephoto + macro. These are going to be dearer than just one lens, but could be handy if you want to do other photography such as macro.

Re: technique help?

To get the starburst effect on the lights you need to set your aperture for f16 or above which will make the exposure even longer so a tripod is a must.

Re: technique help?

it could have a touch of HDR / tone mapping on there as well, tripod and shoot different exposures which will give you more choices later but also potential option to combine exposures (RAW format can also be very useful)

Re: technique help?

I don't think this is a HDR photo. This can be taken with just a good camera, lens and a must have tripod.

I think it's hard to tell unless you have shot there (I have not!) there looks to be a lot more light on the building surface than I would guess would be normal,. it could be flood lit to hell (and I suspect it is) but even so there looks to be some tone mapping to bring the midpoint/shadow level up more than normal
