    Here's one of the shots I got Friday Night taken from the south street seaport. I wanted to make a nice HDR of the bridge, but there were flashing lights all over the place and the colors on the bridge kept changing.

    Very nice capture. The old 6pt cross-screen filter makes the difference.

    Cross screen filter? what's that?

    I used only a UV filter. There was no post processing at all on this.

    Tirediron was referring to the diffraction spikes on the lights. One way to accomplish this is with what's called a "cross-screen filter" (just do a Google search, it's much easier than me trying to explain it). Another way is to use a relatively small aperture, where the blades of the aperture then cause the diffraction spikes.

    Oh, and as for the picture, I like it. :thumbup:

    Ah, I get it. I used f/10 for this shot.
