Night shot from the Riverwalk in New Orleans of the Crescent City Connection bridge. This bridge spans the Mississippi river and connect New Orleans to the Westbank.

I loved this challenge because it gave me a chance to learn my camera a lot more. I didn't have the money for a neutral density filter to capture a daytime shot so I decided to try a night shot. I captured a few pics of some buildings around the NOLA area but thought this one came out the best. I enjoyed it and I hope you do too. Building up to this shot I read that I should have my ISO very high for dark/night time shots. I didn't realize that I only had it on 400 until I got home. Oh well, I like the way it came out next time I need to remember ALL settings before shooting! LOL so much to remember when trying to get a perfect shot!

levels, curves, selective color (black), hue/saturation.

This pic sucks. To much rail in front of lens is distracting.

Great color cast that works well with the subject.
