  Hi Genie. I happen to be very familiar with the shot you took down at the bkln bridge. It is one of my favorite places to shoot at night. I have the luxury of a built in meter and I find that I get consistently good exposure if I shoot at somewhere between 8-12 seconds. Hope that helps. P.S. Have you tried the homemade ice cream shop there? DELICIOUS. Take care, Donna
