Thought I'd be the first to compliment on the front wash of the house. excellent spacing and good photo. I'm sure the homeowner is pleased.

I ask because you may try exposing a sec or so longer...I think it would make your photo look better. Does your camera have a manual mode? I shoot everything manual with my D200 and D80 as I like full control over exposure.

Try taking your photos a little earlier as well. About 20 minutes after sunset or so.

If I may, since you haven't dont the final adjust yet, I would suggest using frosted lenses and wider beams in those bullet lights to minimize the striping effect. It will make it softer and a little more even.

Just my .02

Keep up the good work,
