I like the lines you've captured Stephen. That hot pink really stands out. Your shutter speed was perfect to get the sharp light bursts from the street lamps - it looks like you have 9 blades in your lens. I think bigger than 640 x 480 would show more detail. Lovely image, well done.

Forum limits innit

The 24-70 indeed has a 9 bladed aperture - it is important to stop down to get good light bursts. This was taken at ISO 80 rather than 64 as I wanted a long exposure to get light trails on the bridge and to ghost out moving traffic and people on it. Whilst you get good edge to centre sharpness from F5.6 on this lens you don't get such good bursts. I couldn’t go beyond 30s as I don’t own a cable release. I just the self timer

My best reflection on the clyde got me the bursts reflected in the water - sadly not the case here and it is very rare for such a long exposure for the water not to move slightly.

If you want really good bursts I prefer the sigma ART lens but composing here is very difficult to avoid catching a railing and bit of embankment - here a zoom comes into its down.

It's a tricky spot to get reflections, tides, wind and general bad weather are against you but it's the nicest part of the city if you ask me.
