    Welcome to the forums. Great shots...can't wait to see more of your stuff. The second one seems to be tilted just a touch to the left. Other than that good crisp clear shot, nice tone, lights are clear and not blown. Excellent detail in the first one.

    thank you for the comments.. DRoberts.. do you think leaving the picture on an angle takes away from the picture? the picture was taken sort of on an angle and there is a way to photoshop it straight.. correct?

    Both are good. Did you apply any post processing to them?
    #1 could stand to be sharpened a bit and #2 only suffers from a slight lean.

    i shot it with a D90 with a nikon 50mm 1.4D lens.. i know the lens isn't wide enough but i just wanted to try out night time photography..

    the 14th seems so far away huh.. i remember when i ordered mine, i missed the UPS guy and i just drove out to get it the same day.. anyways.. hope you enjoy your purchase because i'm loving mine..

    These are both great shots. Grats dude or dudette XD You're so lucky that no ships or boats were cruising around causing light streaks and disturbances in the water :D
