    I agree, I don't like the way it gets hazy. I would like to at least have the entire bridge in focus. Would more depth of field help this shot?

    thats stunning, and i like the haziness oddley enough! its the kinda dramatic pic i could see in a physics book illustrating humanities vast abilities and advancements in architecture, but never in real life (well that might just be cause bridges where i live suck)

    This is a too general desire for critique, while the GUIDELINES for this Photo Critique Forum (a sticky, always at the top of this forum's index!) clearly say something different.

    I will therefore have to move your post to the General Gallery ... not without saying that this is a very well exposed night photo!

    I get a film noir, urban wasteland/apocalyptic feel from this photo. No cars visitable, or any sign of movement. The haze gives it an industrial feel to it. The horizon/sky, and general color pallete reminds me of videos from the Ivy Mike thermonuclear shot.

    I like this photo a lot.

    well exposed and i like the industrial feel.
    IMO the compo would have been improved had you included more FG nd less sky

    Very good, I like the reflection, perspective and contrast.

    I like the first better, because of the reflection in the water. :) Beautiful night shots though. I've always wanted to visit Ottawa!

    I think you had it in the first shot. For that picture, I think the debate was personal preference points.

    The second image doesn't have a feel to it, though it's well exposed. It looks more like "a picture of a bridge," although it's an excellent picture of a bridge. You are taking a picture OF the bridge, versus using the bridge as a creative element of your picture.
