This is my 3rd, and final upload of the First Severn Bridge this shot was taken at 22:35 bst 1 hour 34 minutes after sunset, I've never taken a photograph of the bridge so late into the night, and noise proofed a problem!

Thank you to everybody who has viewed, and commented on this mini series, on a historical note the suspension bridge took five years to construct, and was opened by the Queen in 1966, six builders lost their lives!

In late July I hope to have a new camera, and will go on a photo shoot with Paul Thompson / paul1972, we plan to photograph the crossing from a different angle this time.

Thank you once again for the interest you've shown, and have a nice day. (o:

I have left my comment here once! gggrrr
Now I can compare and probably guess your reasons. In case I fail to do it, I will know where to apply for the explanations.

A little noise makes the night air mysterious Phlossie. The lights glow which offsets the noise.
Good series.

People are like cameras--sometimes they lose focus.

You sure are dedicated to stay with this shoot for so many hours. A dedicated photographer and the shots were worth it. I love this with all the twinkly lights and the reflections of them shining on the water. Fine night photography.

That shutter speed smoothed the water nicely...R.

Never argue with an idiot. They'll drag you down to their level, then beat you with experience.

All three shots have been wonderful Phil. This one too is an exceptionally good shot. Like the way the light shines on the water.

Noise is a problem when taking late night shots. I think you have managed to take care of that very well in this beautiful shot.
Great work once again!

This is lovely. I like how as this place darkens the colours are constantly changing. My favourite so far! Well done!

Liking this a lot... and coming with a note that I tried X4 Noise Reducer on it... 20,30,40 with some satisfaction (for me). I remember X3 doing a creditable job at this task as well.  ☺

Phil, this is a wonderful night capture, the noise really does not bother me much in this shot, the lights, and water turned out wonderful. Okay now what kind of camera are you getting or are you going to make us wait to find out. :) Tigs♥ =^..^=
