G'day Casper.
There's something gloomy, both actually and figuratively, about the photo and the story behind it. It reminded me a bit of a PHOTO which I uploaded about 8 years ago, taken from a formerly working class enclave which is now also being furiously gentrified after a period of domination by waves of migrants. It was taken in daylight, but has some features in common with your photo, including a ferris wheel.
Your note really makes this interesting. The long exposure's worked well, aptly keeping the lights subdued and evoking the dim mood. I presume you had a tripod or held the camera against something for the duration of the exposure. Anyway, it's a welcome upload with a difference.

Default To tenretin: Purple Fringing

Thanks for your critique. Its called 'purple fringing' and is caused by too much UV light in strong contrasted light scenes. Not much I could do about it. Catch 22. Using a UV filter would increase the exposure time. You need to use a high shutter speed to reduce the UV. I exposed for the shadows. Better to get shadow detail and oe highlights than no shadow detail at all and nicely exposed highlights. Next time I will desaturate the purple fringing.
