    Eh.. I like them. Especially the first. It might look better as a square crop though, with all that empty bridge on the left gone.

    very colorful and sharp! i agree with the crop comment. but on the other hand, the current crop gives you a real feeling of the length of the bridge

    if i cropped the bridge the water reflection would be gone, but i think it might look better ill give it a try. i cropped the neon sign because a car was in the shot, plus there was dead space above too. i honestly dont think these shots are that sharp, i think the coolest part is the christmas colored lights on the bridge, i cant wait for 4th of july when they make them red white and blue.

    thanks for the comments

    i think if the shot was in the dead center and panoramic it would look cool, but it would be hard to get in the dead center

    on second thought, I think I like the original more. the bridge looks more impressive in the first one.

    anyway..both are awesome.

    I agree that the sheer size of the bridge in the uncropped version of number 1 is what makes the shot..

    wow i feel good about myself. thanks for the comments. the moon looks full in the picture but it was only a half moon, it was weird it wasnt cut verically, it was cut horizontally straight across, too bad u cant see it. i also learned that this lens isnt the sharpest at 12mm

    btw this is the ben franklin bridge in philadelphia that leads into camden nj

    Are you referring to the Nikon or Tokina lens?
