Question for the photographers about nighttime city skyline pics
I finally got a chance to go out and take some nighttime city skyline pics of downtown Chattanooga from across the river in one of the new public parks. I'll try to post them as some of them came out rather nicely. I was using a Nikon N2000 camera with a Sigma 28-75 lens and Kodak Portra VC165 film. I'm looking forward to trying it again with some other equipment I have and some film my brother gave me for Christmas.
The question I have involves weather conditions at the time of taking the pictures. This particular night, we'd had a clear day with a few clouds in the sky. There was just enough to provide some interest and contrast over the course of the day, and it remained so as day turned to night.
Can you still get a good nighttime pic like that with an overcast sky? We've been having more cloudy days than sunny recently.
Any advice would be appreciated.
