    Works for me. Maybe just a little blown on the 'towers' but i really like the feel to this. Good work.

    I agree...you probably could have used a bit slower of a shutter speed and not blown the bridge, but the truth is that with the starred street lamp and that smoke coming out of the stack, there is so much going on that the blown part doesn't stand out as much as it should.

    You could also try dodging or burning in PS (I don't know how to do any of that so I'm no help there).

    It's a great subject, though, and it's still a pretty darn good pic!

    Actually the dodging and burning idea is great, I will give that a try. I like the starred light, but if I pull contrast/brightness to eliminate the blown out look the star will get reduced. By dodging the collumn I could solve the issue.

    Thanks all.
