This is photograph I have clicked during my Sweden visit. It was city center area at Gothenburgh. The view is quite eye pleasing – cold weather, water stream in between roads, surrounded by glowing building. Its worth capturing.

I tried to use built in flash for this photograph but as it was not a strong flash it resulted into light spots on photograph and almost destroyed the photograph. On DSLR Camera Screen it was not much visible but when i reviewed it on laptop screen it was an disappointment.

So I Planned to corrected photograph using Photo editing tools. So below are my DSLR setting while clicking and its Edting Details

Scope of Improvement

This photograph would be much more better if I would have used tripod stand to stabilize camera, use ISO to half, didnt used Flash and lower down shutter speed than 1/10s. These settings would have reduced need for editing.
