I took these about 2 months ago while trying to get some creative shots to put up in my new flat.

Night photography is new to me, so any advice will be appreciated.

I like that pic that has more of the bridge visible.

Is there too much sky?

I think you've done a really good job for a first try. I prefer the first one, and it would have been even better if you could have got the whole bridge in, but I don't know if that's possible without walking on water!

I have driven over that bridge loads of times and wondered where would be best to shoot it from... you caught it well! I always think of trying to stop traffic and get it from that middle bi-directional lane with the name of the bridge and stuff...

BTW like the first one best... but I do agree with John come out wider and get more of the bridge in...

you can always take two photos and use autostitch to create a panorama.

Thanks for the comments. I would have love to have found a better spot so that I could getthe whole bridge in, but at the time I was more looking at exposure than composition (that will teach me).

What packages have auto stitch? I am using PSP7 at the moment and looking to move to either PSP X or Photoshop Elements 4. Any suggestions?

Nice shots Mark.. My vote goes to the first one.

You could take a tripod and get a panorama. Mind with the dark nights it will have to wait till next year or take it at 5pm

I have both Photostitch and Panorama Maker. Both do the same job and stitch images one after the other. I got one from a friend and the other came with my Canon. Have a look on the web for a demo.

here is autostitch

all you have to do with this package is select your photos. The proggy does all the work. And it works well with no intervention. All other packages require manual work to align and blend, etc. Plus, its free.
