Weekly Photo Challenge: Nighttime


Monkeys like the night so this week’s Word Press Photo Challenge was right up Kongo’s tree house.  The San Diego skyline just after sunset on a clear day is always a great photo subject.  Kongo snapped this image Thursday evening from Harbor Island, just across from the San Diego airport, taking several time exposure images at different exposures then blending them together to make this HDR rendition.

Some critics have said the San Diego skyline resembles a smile with several missing teeth.  I get their point but I still like it!

See more nighttime images at the challenge page.



  1. Beautiful view!


  2. This is a really nice use of HDR, mainly because it isn’t obvious that HDR was used. And the result is a terrific image that captures the magic of twilight.


  3. Stunning effort, Kongo. That is a magnificent blue sky and sea. As Robin said, the HDR isn’t that obvious – which is great. Seamless and not over-the-top, but just enough the accentuate the buildings. Well done. Monkey certainly has a good eye 🙂


    1. Thanks, Mabel.
