As nearly any photographer will tell you, shooting at night can be a complete and total pain. There is the typical challenge of the right exposure, focal length and shutter speed, but nighttime photography also adds in extra challenges, such as white balance, starbursts and halo artifacts. Couple that with the difficulty in finding good places for night photography, and it’s no wonder that most photographers both amateur and professional alike stick to morning, daytime and evening photographs.

However, for the truly motivated, there are ways to take high quality nighttime photographs (of course, shooting RAW doesn’t hurt either). In this post, you’ll find 30 awe-inspiring nighttime photographs that get everything from composition to exposure right.
