    Very nice (but saddening pics) from the post Twin Towers era... my only suggestion would be for the night shots... a tripod and using the shutter release timer function... that will help with the blurry pics...

    A tripod will help..Unless you're on a boat... ;) These are nice photos, but as has been said already, for night shots (and slow shutter speeds) the camera has to be perfectly still...that'll eliminate all of the blur.

    Another suggestion (Unless you just 'want' it) is to remove the date function. Another way to date them would be to put a border around the photo and put the date in there...

    Shutter speed is just how long the shutter is open to expose the film/sensor. Night shots are dark, so to get a good exposure, the shutter has to be open longer to get more light, basically. The longer it's open, the more likely it is the camera will move during the exposure unless it's on a tripod on a solid surface...if you're in a boat that's moving, it'll be almost impossible to get a crips night shot which, again, requires the longer shutter speed.

    Hope this helps...
