Default Blue Bridge - Night Shots

Some shots of the bridge in Ducey lit up at night. Longest exposure was 30secs for the last shot. Please feel free to give feedback.

Again, wow! The colours are fantastic. The alternating blue and yellow/orange/red areas look so cool.

My only comments would be around exposure - would be nice to compare with some shots of it a little more exposed. Perhaps pushing out to 60 seconds or enlarging aperture (depending on what that was set to?).

Diane,
Awesome deep colored shots.
My personal suggestion is it should be a bit more brighter. I guesstimate that all your shots were taken under f4~5 (maybe I'm wrong), if you go over generally f4/5/6/7/8 it will give you a much brighter picture, and the bridge/building/water flow will pop out more. At that higher f stop you won't need a 30 sec exposure; it can be a lot shorter than 30 sec.
Again, I totally agree with Mick.

Thanks,
Jeff

I hope you wouldn't mind for the pic that I exposed a bit of more light from original pic. Please view....

Hi Mick, and thanks for the comments. I have real trouble getting the exposure longer. Originally it went up to 40 secs then down to 30. If I remeber correctly in manual I had F.8, ISO 100 and 30 secs exposure. How do you manage to get a 60 sec exposure?? Thanks again for the help.

Hi Jeff, no I dont mind at all - its good to have other eyes looking at my shots and giving feedback. As I said to Mick, I do seem to have probs with these type of shots. The shot was taken at 11.30pm so it was pitch black for the sky, and in manual, aperture f.8, ISO 100 and the camera gave me the 30 sec exposure ........ any ideas??
