It's been a long time since I have had the luxury of going out for a night and shooting some long exposures.

These pictures look totally diferent than my first attempt with my 300D almost a year ago.

This is off the bridge at Balboa Park looking over 163 towards downtown.

I'm really kicking myself that I didn't shoot LOT more exposures; as I think this really would have benefitted from high dynamic range processing.

and most unfortunately it had the typical marine layer night haze :(

Nice. I'd be itching to straighten the horizon a little, maybe work on the contrast.

Very nice. It somehow looks like a circuit board.

It's quite underexposed, I think it would have benefited from a longer exposure at the least, or HDR processing if possible.

As for straightening, now it's too crooked the other way. What you want to use is the measure tool. It's underneath the eye dropper in photoshop CS. Drag the measure tool along something that should be parallel to one of the edges, then go in to rotate your image and go to "arbitray". The number for a straight horizon should already be there

A great shot, but a bit underexposed in my opinion.

I agree with it being underexposed. You could have gotten more of the building in properly exposed if you had the shutter open a little longer. Good attempt though.
