    don't mind me saying this but, your first two pics are clearly slanted. I think one of the greatest enemies to landscape shots is a slanted horizon. Unless it is meant to be an abstract so delibrately made slanted, a slanted landscape looks very very weird, and sometimes makes me a little giddy.

    If you didn't manage to align your tripod properly, you can try to rotate your image in Photoshop. Think it will look much better.

    for the first 2 pics, are the exposure right? or are they overexposed?

    I took it on the expressway (ECP) and its a sloping ECP. my tripod is the 'lousy' type, so it is a bit slanted.

    you could adjust one of the legs and make the camera level....

    no matter how lousy at least can adjust the pan head, or at least shift the tripod legs to align properly right....

    but a dose of rotation in photoshop will really help...
    I like your first 2 pics (the overexposure, if any, is fine by me), just that the slantedness really spoils them...

    tried, but can't really get it straight, I might be in a bad spot, the slope is quite bad, the one ECP exit to rocher road.

    The first one looks ok already..but still a bit slanted. The 2nd one is still too slanted for my liking...it's obvious when you compare the buildings to the vertical lines (boundary of the picture, the scrollbars etc).

    We seem to hanging out at the same places lately.





    I think yours is better. The power of a longer exposure

    difference seems to be a matter of white balance settings only though.

    I usually prefer the use incandescent for nite shots to remove the orangish hue but sometimes the colour seems a bit washed out as a result.
