    Hey everyone, thanks for taking the time to give me some pointers on my first time with night shooting. Just to let yall know, I did not have a tripod so I had to be very creative in shooting...having a tripod would had been so cool!

    I love the shots of the water! I've been trying to get something like that. I should go and try again...

    I just got my tripod, and it makes a world of difference!

    I liked the second shot especially.

    I love night shots, they feel like you're doing something that shouldn't be possible.

    LOVE Columbus Circle!, especially in the dark...maybe my favourite spot in Manhattan.
    So I'm with you on the best pic of the bunch. Having said that: I think it would have been better if the reflection of the water was completely in the pic. And I feel the background is a bit too busy. (somehow it feels like the trees on the left are in the way).

    thanx for sharing!
