Night Falls

Just in case the drama and majesty of the Falls are not enough, they are lit up at night in changing colors and throughout the tourist season there is a nightly fireworks display. Some years ago I remember setting up my camera on a tripod and taking long, 30-second exposures at low ISOs. These were shot handheld on automatic through my hotel-room window with some minimal noise reduction, contrast and a few other minor adjustments. (Click any image to see them all enlarged.)
