I took this shot at dawn in Newport, Rhode Island on my spring trip to New England. On the left is the Claiborne Pell Newport Bridge. I was cold and tired, but the pastel colors that morning made it very worthwhile. I set my camera to "bulb" exposure mode and used a 96 second exposure to make the water silky smooth. I tried to make the composition more interesting with the position of the pier pointing towards the bridge.
