I agree, many of the east coast cities here, still have that touch of history to it, much like you would see in the UK or elsewhere in Europe. On the west coast, this level of preservation is virtually non-existent. If you want to see a beautiful modern and clean city, however, check out Seattle.
One of my good friends goes to Carnegie Mellon just down the street from downtown and I have always wanted to visit, it looks like such a pretty city, and this photograph has convinced me that I must go see it sometime soon!
Thanks again! yeah, the overlook spot I was using was the angle I wanted but I wanted to keep all of the bridge to the right into it as well...aiming too high would have lost most of the bridge. Perhaps, I could always mask over that with some additional water.
