hi all, last night i finally got a chance to go out and try to get some "real" pics, i didn't get any fireworks, but i got some nice buildings and some sunsets, please let me know your opinions as this is my first time doing these types.

this would've come out a lot better, but someone couldn't watch their kids and let them run up and down the pier, causing the tripod to shake. i am still impressed with it though.

this is the same pic, just a tighter crop

all were done with little to no post work (aside from cropping)

2 + 7 were taken at night (all pics posted are in chronological order), i was just trying out the longer shutter speeds to see how bright they'd get, so ignore the blown out appearance, focus on composition. thanks.

I like 3,5,9 the best! I like how you got the clouds and color on the glass of the building.
And the one of the Road I like as it gives you the feeling that you are in motion. Anyway that is what I like ,even if I do not know how an expert will see them. :)

#2 not in focus + burned sky, and i think you could use lower ISO.
#7 same burned sky.
#10,10 not in focus but composition is ok.
