    Hi [insert name here]

    I really like this photo. The lights on the bridge look great as nothing seems to have really blown out. I'm a huge fan of night photography and spend most of my time shooting at night myself. I have recently been introduced to cropping to non-standard sizes and I quite liked a 4x7 crop for this image. If you crop the image (and possibly clone out those railings on the right side of the photo), it looks as thought it wasn't taken off a wharf, plus keeps the focus on the bridge. The poles are distracting (to my eye anyway) and if removed, would probably add to the photo.

    I have attached my version of the image to this post. By the way, you can add the image to your current post by clicking the image button (if you hover your mouse cursor over the toolbar items, the button's function description will pop up after a few seconds) in the toolbar when posting/editing. You need to copy and paste the direct link to the full size image (by enlarging from the thumbnails or right clicking the attachment when posting and clicking "Copy Link Location" or whatever similar menu item your browser has) - in this case, it would be http://www.cambridgeincolour.com/for...7&d=1245934450.

    Here is my attempt at a crop of this photo.

    Hi reciclatoru,

    nice choice of subject and good photo- particularly like the overall tone and subtle reflections in the water.

    This is actually the Széchenyi Chain Bridge, the Elizabeth bridge is the next one downstream and not nearly as photogenic...

    For some reason, Dan's crop seems to make the bridge shorter!

    Maybe a slight crop half way between this and the original might be worth a look, but I'm not sure.

    Certainly a good crisp image. But my only question is 'How did you manage to stop the traffic'?

    Hi Rakfa and Reciclatoru,

    Yes, these bridges are quite photogenic - here's it's "baby brother" Marlow suspension bridge in England (near me if you hadn't guessed).

    For what its worth, I think I'd crop somewhere between the original and Dan's.

    Good exposure and white balance, and a nice noise free image, well done reciclatoru.
