The composition works very well, perfect exposure, and good use of the lighting and reflections. You made a good choice on not over-sharpening this. Also good to see someone using the same camera I use. :-)

Great night picture! I love the "color" of the sand!

Thanks Petros. The "sand" is really mud, hence the colour.

The bridge stands out really well against the night sky, could possibly be a little sharper, light reflections look good on the low water.Unsure about the composition a lttle off the bottom and a little more on the top, but that would centre the bridge, maybe it's just right as it is.Regs Brian

Thanks Brian. I agree with the sharpness point - but I didn't want to oversharpen and introduce artifacts. I felt that the processing had reached the stage where its best left alone.

Hi Glynn! I love long exposed night pics very much and yours is very nice. I guess you did not want to place the bridge in the middle of the photo, which I would not do either, but somehow I think there should be a bit more sky above the moon - Thank you for sharing - Karin

Thanks Karin. It was a trade off between just more dark sky or the infinitely better(imo)detailed foreground.

Wow, someone finally got down low enough to shoot this right! We all try bridges and their majesty and context from time to time, but you've managed here to capture the whole thing, the architectural wonder, the gritty environment, the urban purpose. And all achieved by getting down low and then going even lower. Fine lesson to us all. The fact that you mastered the depth and mist and glow is just icing on the cake. Three TU, and thanks very much for sharing.
