Nice to see you trying your hand at something different form the BBall. They are both well lit shots. I think the 2nd has the most potential, I would straighting the horizon is it is slanting to the left. The path on the left is distracting from the main subject.

I love good night-shots - and these are - when you have leveled your horizon a bit. # 1 is listing to the right and # 2 is listing to the left, as already pointed out by Mark1616

Keep posting more of these kind of shots!

Wow -- stunning. If I may ask, how did you create the starburst effect on the lights?

Thanks guys, I am quite pleased with my first attempts at long exposures.
The canon RS80 remote i got for crimbo is a handy tool.
The starburst effect , I think is due to an aperture of f18 or 20.
Cheers Dave

Quite right...if you use a small aperture, it creats the starburst effect on the lights without the need for a starburst filter! Got to be careful however in not selecting such a small aperture that you lose some image quality...definitely worth experimenting.

I like the reflection of the arch in the river. As Mark suggests, a little straigtening would make it great!

#2 is really great. A picture outside the box which works. I'll not mention the only mistake, as others have.

#1 is also very good, but lacks the peculiarity that #2 has.

Keep ‘em comin’

really nice first attempts for night-shots, definately something i would like to see more of..

my comments have already been stated, fix them as suggested and you have some winners.

one final comment, if you had moved your tripod about .5-1 meter to the right and adjusted the angle back to the bridge on shot #1. the little black railing could have led you into the scene a little better and you could have avoided the orange light on the building in the far right.
