Nice pic.

I have a quick question though regarding the F-stop.

Any reason why you are using f8? Wouldn't using a lower f-stop be better?

I always thought that the lower the f the more light gets in.

Check this pic.

f1.8, 4sec, ISO64, Tripod, Olympus C5050Z

With a lower F-stop, a faster shutter speed could be used. But maybe msantos wanted to make sure cars or pedestrians were blurred out, or maybe his lens is sharpest at f/8.

You are rigth Tom.

I was waiting for a while, but some pedestrians were continously crossing the bridge, so I decided to use a long exposure to disapear them :G.

Also I like the "star" effect on the spot ligths. I didn't use a cross filter, this camera gives that effect with high f-stops.
