Love the shot. I love taking pictures of Pgh at night. Too bad my camera is horrible and I lack the talent needed to get something like this.

Pittsburghers have an unfair advantage when it comes to taking night shots, they've got one of the best looking downtown areas around to use. Great shot!

I just got this lens too, nice to see great results from it, I look foward to using mine. This shot is staggering, apparently Tamron just won some contest in Europe for best lens blah blah blah, wish i had morer details to share... Enjoy the blue well done.

Don't you just HATE those stupid banners they hang up? I mean that is like a landmark for the city!

CONGRATS!!!!!

You captured the beauty of the bridge much more than myself. Great shot, Alan!

edit: and might I add -- quite a scary vantage point that late at night!!!

Congratulations on the blue! Did not have a chance to comment on it, and the only thing I would try to do differently in the future is take a shot without that stupid banner on the bridge - or just clone it out before you make it printable!

Very nice!

Quite a romantic take. Even better had the camera been held perpendicular to avoid the slight shift or lean. Otherwise, a great night shot. bump.
