Cities can be tough to shoot even for experienced photographers. In this gallery, get tips on how to capture the essence of urban spaces. Here, a wide-angle lens offers a sprawling view of Florence from the top of the city's famous Duomo.

How to Take Photos of Cities | Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco Photograph by James Sugar, National Geographic | #Photography Tip: The sunny f/16 rule: If you are attempting to make a landscape photograph without a tripod, inverse the ISO in selecting your shutter speed. For instance, with a 200 ISO you would select 1/200 of a second at f/16. Like the outline of a mountain peak, a tower of the Golden Gate Bridge is visible above the summer fog in San Francisco Bay.

Moonbow, Milky Way, meteor | #Astronomy | While the Milky Way shone down, a meteor zipped past, adding to the drama. But what’s that at the bottom? A rainbow? At night? It’s a Moonbow, the same thing as a rainbow but with the Moon as the light source. Well, and it’s not raindrops that cause it, but aerosolized water droplets acting as little prisms, breaking the light up into the usual colors. Moonbows are very faint, but they show up in long exposures like this one. #Science #Photography #space
