My 1st photo thread: Canary Wharf at night

Hi all, went down to London for my 21st on the weekend. Met up with my parents on the Friday and, as well as them buying me my first digital camera (a friend once gave me his old SLR but that broke after shooting one roll of film) turns out they got some cheap deal at the Hilton on the Thames bank in Rotherhithe, just across the water from Canary Wharf. We were on the 1st floor, with the 2nd jutting out above slightly which explains the over hang in some shots.

We also went up Tower 42 for a drink, which was unbelievable but didn't take any pictures worth showing. When my parents had gone to bed however, I was able to take my time messing about, and these are the results.

Was very limited in terms of angles as I had to find places where I could keep it still enough for the long exposures (relying mostly on an awkward radiator) but think they turned out pretty well considering (though think the lights on the office buildings could be better).

I've always wanted to get into photography, and I currently live in Norwich so fully intend to go out practising and build up a nice album of the city to post on here soon, then I'll be off to set up camp in London in September so expect to shoot plenty when I'm there too.

Anyway enough babbling, here are the shots, roughly set out from north-south:
