are your time exposures BRANDED ? ? ?

branded = shot in a way that creates niche unique to you;

either via

shooting technique

composition technique

processing technique

other...?

as example, a common time exposure = city skyline at dusk;

are yours branded?  does branding make them more salable?

(to whatever extent one is willing to say & maintain proprietary information...)

Nothing special about mine. Although, Alamy has sold one of mine for more than 20k. 

I played around with blending modes the other day. That might work for quite a few images.

 

Forgot to add: I tend to stop when the blue hour finishes. I find that a black sky doesn't work for me.

Yes, the 'window of opportunity' at dusk may only be about 20 minutes, but atmospheric shots are very saleable. And once the sky is 'deep blue', I'm done...

How would you "brand" a night shot? 

 

Night shooting for me is no different from daytime shooting. You get the best shot you can but very often what and how you shoot is dictated by the subject and the situation.

 

I agree a blue sky is better than a black one, but sometimes you don't have a choice:
