    A photographer friend and I went out last night around downtown. I didn't get as many keepers as I hoped, but these were some of the best. C&C appreciated!

    I like how in #2 your eye gets drawn to the red sign on the left, and then back along the bridge to the reflections in the water. Nice shot.

    Really like the angle you shot in #5, the way the lines from the railings seem to head off into infinity, and the gold on the top of the building downtown. Makes me think there should be an old movie announcer in the background, introducing a quiet night in gotham for a batman movie. Cool stuff.

    Hey, that red sign of Gold Medal Flour came out nicely. I am struggling with red signs most of the time! (OK, "most of the time" exaggerates things quite a bit - I haven't been out doing A LOT of night photography, ever at all... :roll: ;)).

    Nice work, Marcus. On the first one I wish you had gotten the whole tower of the bridge. That's my only real nit to pick with this series.

    I was hovering around downtown Minneapolis last night as well. It is SO pretty at night!

    nice shots, maybe try a little more exposure next time so you can pull a little more of the detail out of the buildings... i really like the old flour mill one

    Thanks for the comments. Yea, I agree about cutting off the top of the bridge tower. I hadn't noticed that until I got home. Usually I'm pretty careful about composing.

    Also, I think I could have done a longer exposure for the skyline shot.

    I love the flour mills shot, but then I'm a sucker for mills. I've shot 3 so far in my local area :)
