Default Bridge shot through trees...

I'm undecided about this... I know its not the angle I wanted, but i didn't have my tripod with me so I was limited by where I could place the camera for a long exposure...

thoughts?

I think a 2 shot hdr would go good here. One exposure for overall as you have done and another exposure for the lights in the building. Night shots always look better to me because of the colorful beauty of the lights. This is no exception. The branches hanging over dont help any. Next time take an axe with you. I wonder what a flash would do to give some color to the leaves.

Good idea, I never thought of painting the leaves. They were definitely close enough that I could have. I may go back tonight and give it another shot.

Dont forget the axe in case the painting doesnt work out.

Nice shot, just a little to cluttered with all the dark leaves in the scene.

I like the bridge and lighting but the branches/leaves only distract from this. I think even if you painted them with flash they would still be distracting. Do you have the ability to find any other vantage points? Also you need to find an evening where the water is so calm again as this really helps create the lovely feel.

This water is never calm, the long exposure just makes it look that way.

Unfortunately, right now there is no other angle, the water is so high that I'd either get filthy or wet trying

Ah, hadn't spotted it was a 15 second exposure.
