Those night shots are spectacular. I particularly like the one of the Sydney Opera House.

Great night shots, what a beatiful night skyline Brisbane has!

BTW, a curious coincidence: Gordon just published a night photo workshop in DSLRTips.com where one example picture is precisely of Harbour Bridge at night, taken from a slightly different angle:

http://www.dslrtips.com/workshops/How_to_take_photos_at_night/manual_long_exposure.shtml

It's plain that both of you guys rightly estimated that Harbour Bridge is a beatiful spot for a night shot! :mrgreen:

Congrats on those beatiful pics.

What exposures did you use for the night shots? I think they look great!

Excellent! And they look like low ISO shots, so the quality should look great blown-up!

thank you..i love to use low ISO for all my night image..I always use ISO 100 for my night image, so the quality of the picture would be great..also thanks to the 'long exposure noise reduction' in my nikon d80, so I could reduce the noise even though i used the long exposure..

Fantastic night shots there, quite worthy of a magazine shoot.

Cheers Ormina

Well looks like you have enough complements but they are spectacular. I wish I could reproduce shots like this. I haven't been able to do to much yet. You've had yours a bit longer than me, but looks like your doing quiet a bit better than me. LOL. are these pictures edited at all or is that strait from the Camera?
