    Anthony,

    If you want a nice shot of traffic and the TransAmerica Pyramid there is a great place at the top of Montgomery and Green street. Could also get some great shots of the Ferry Bldg. Used to live up there and the views are spectacular.

    Thanks Bryan! Looks like I've got the inside scoop being that you used to live there! I know exactly where I will be going Friday evening :D Thanks!!!

    Tripod for sure -Sixteen second expoure! :) Any longer and the headlights from oncoming traffic would have been completely botched and overexposed.

    Been playing around with my new camera and trying to learn as much as possible. Went out and took some night shots the other night. I would appreciate any advice/criticism to help me get better at taking better pictures!

    I got the Rebel t2i camera with the 15-85mm lens. Here were the settings for each pic:

    Willie Mays pic - f5, 4sec shutter speed, ISO 100
    SF from Potrero - f5, 20sec shutter speed, ISO 100
    Bay Bridge - f9, 10sec shutter speed, ISO 400
    First SF shot - f9, 8sec shutter speed, ISO 400
    Second SF shot - f10, 30sec shutter speed, ISO 100

    Those are some nice pictures Durwin -you'll have your own print on your new condominium walls in no time :)
    Did you use a tripod for these pictures? What camera mode did you shoot in?
    Seems the weather cooperated with you too! :)

    The Willie Mays Plaza shot is stunning. Not sure if it is because of the high detail with so many different light, but I like this one more then the others.

    Thanks guys for all the comments.

    Ant, I did use a small tripod. It's one of those joby gorilla tripods. Also, I think I shot most in manual mode but some might have been shot with the aperture priority setting.

    Did you use timer mode, or a remote to trigger the shutter?
