Yes! A much nicer image than before. I think you nailed it. What did you do different this time?

I really like this one. You should be happy with it, it's quite sharp and I love the hint of the fading day in the sky.

I agree very nice you should be pleased. I like the lighting and the reflections also the clouds add interest.

So much better than the last one. Your first attempt had very nice color, showed a good eye for composition, but was just too blurry. Looks like you have done a great job controlling the motion blur. Did you use tripod, mirror lock up, remote, and/or weight on the tripod?

Tripod plus 2 sec delay just the same as last time , the difference was no wind i guess

the star burst effect looks much nicer with the smaller aperture

Yup with a good lens with allot of blades it does at long exposures. If the lights on the bridge is one, it will be a pretty nice looking photo.

This was one of my bridge shots, taking at f13, for 20sec at 400iso. The starburst effects on the bridge really adds to the shot.
