So, primarily im an aviation photographer and generally only shoot if there is an aircraft in sight. With the winter coming up and a distinct lack of airshows and the nights drawing in ive decided to try and branch out and try a bit of landscape/urban photography. personally i really like the shot below but with it not being my area of expertise im after any pointers from you guys who shoot this kind of thing on a more regular basis. Cheers for taking the time to have a look and please be honest, no one ever improves by people saying nice shot ;)

It looks good to me.

My only other comment would be that the right hand bridge support seems to be leaning in a little. This could be due to barrel distortion but as it is in the centre of the frame this seems unlikely. it could also be a converging vertical.

Unless it actually is like that you could think of correcting it - probably quite easy in your software.

Yep, very nice glow… but, as Jeremy noted, it is leaning to the right!

I like the photo and particularly the Flickr version which shows the stars up much better than on here, presumably because it's a bigger version. As Jeremy said, the tilt can be easily removed with little impact as there is sufficient room round the edges of the photo to allow for it.

That's a fine shot as well Ben, and the lights on the new crossing rally benefit the left side of the photo. The highlights on the rail bridge lighting seem a bit bright, but I guess it's a case of getting the balance right.

Nice shot. But it's simply called the Forth Bridge. It was there before any other bridge.
