None of those shots are touched up or enhanced...I really don't like to spend time editing my photos so if they're not good right out of the camera, I usually delete them. The last shot is approximately a 30 sec exposure late at night with a full moon providing the light..my night shots are usually done with a full frame Canon 5DIII and I like to use a fast lens wide open at 100 ISO. I also experiment and try lots of different settings at night in order to get the look I'm after.

Not sure my phone had those settings? Very nice pictures. Thanks for sharing. Sold my old Canon Eos years ago with all different lenses.

Looks like an HDR shot.

I'm more concerned about the space base in the second pic - What the hell is that thing?!?

aaah - never mind. Just read about the time and ISO. 5DIII is a nice setup.

It's not very obvious it's night time in the photo with the stars. Pretty cool effect.
