Blue Building: http://img442.imageshack.us/img442/6234/opera2ms.jpg Cityscape: http://img442.imageshack.us/img442/8978/southbank7vp.jpg Hey all, I've just taken my very first photos (apart from the times I clicked away on my $20 compact, which doesn't count). They're both of the cityscape at night. I think I've made a lot of mistakes with the photos, does anyone have any advice to improve on them? With the 1st photo (blue building) I wanted to get all the various coloured lights contrasting with each other. The 2nd photo was taken from a bridge over the river. I wanted to capture the river, the trees/riverbank, and the cityscape (all on the right-hand side of the river). I don't think my composition was too good, should I have taken the shot from across the river, or at least a different angle? The photos were taken with a Canon A520 (4MP), with f2.6 and shutter speeds from 0.5 to 2 seconds (these two photos' shutter speed is about 0.8"). Photos were saved as JPEG.
