    Taking this was a lot of fun. I will fix it when I learn how to use photoshop (mainly get rid of the power lines), but for now it's pretty cool. Please offer any advice, no matter how harsh.

    A good, solid attempt. I have two suggestions: Straighten the buildings so they are vertical with some counter-clockwise rotation and check the histograms as you take the photos. The bright building has obvious highlight clipping so there should have been an additional exposure on the highlight end. I find that a night shot like this can easily require 7 - 8 images when using a 1 stop difference.

    Like the composition and the water looks cool too.

    Thanks! Good advice, and I will take it into account next time out. In the mean time, I re"built" the image, and straightened it..... and lo and behold I think it looks quite a bit nicer. That bright building is tough, since even properly exposed it looks like a torch. They have an awful lot of light on that one.

    Here is the second attempt at this one.....

    I can't get past that one glowing yellow building in the center. It draws all my attention...

    Cool shot, I dont think I have ever seen it from this angle. was this from across the river? The stone arch makes for great shots, Ive used it a few times.

    Thanks! At the north end of the bridge (across the river from the mill city museum) there is a staircase just to the west of the bridge. (about ten feet from the bridge deck) That takes you right to the bank of the river and makes for some really great shots. If you're in the area, I highly recommend a visit there. If you go at night I recommend the buddy system, or get your carry permit. There can be some very interesting and not-so-well meaning folks there after the sun goes down.

    Yeah, I saw that too. The bridge went through some renovation not too long ago, and is only a pedestrian and bike bridge. I think it's pretty safe. Minneapolis has been pretty paranoid about that kind of thing since the collapse of the 35W bridge a few years ago (which can be seen from the stone arch) so if there was a structural problem, you can bet they would be all over it.
