Pagota Photograph #1 in my Challenge.

This is the first of 365 photos I will post over the next year in my personal challenge to develop my creativity and skills as a photographer.  For my first shot, I decided to go to downtown Riverside California at 11:00 at night, and brave the weirdos to get a few shots of town by evening light.  My first stop was the Chinese pavillion.  I knew with the wonderful cloud cover, I wanted a long exposure to give the clouds some defenition and color.  I used an off camera flash about fifteen feet to the right of the camera, about seven feet high, set off with a radio slave.  ISO 200, Exp. 25 seconds, f11  28-105mm Sigma lens at 28mm.  Manual exp, and focus.
