I took this picture yesterday. It was taken with a Pentax Optio S4i. The camera was on a mini tripod to prevent movement of the camera.

Additionally, in order to prevent movement of the camera, I used the timer.

It was taken from shore, using the "Night" setting. I thought it was a fluke, and ended up taking several, and they all turned out like this.

I am guessing that the night setting slows down the shutter. If the boat was moving, in the water, even if you are still, the light reflections were dragging across the pic until the shutter closed again.

Meaning that the light reflections were in more than one location (because of the lights on the moving boat) before the shutter closed again.

That is just a guess though, cuz I am not familiar with the settings on your camera.

Oh, I guess that would do it. Slower shutter.

Thanks, Cricket!

I could be wrong, but I think the water movement may have been part of the issue too, causing the light reflections to move around on ya.

Hopefully someone has an idea to help prevent it.

you took this picture with ISO100. Try to increase ISO value to 200 or 400 while decreasing exposure time. Aperture seems to be OK at 2.8.

but the boat didn't travel up to the top of the bridge did it? i thought slow shutter allowed the light to extend in the motion the lit object was going. that just looks rippled... really strange.

cool image though.

No but the reflections from the lights do.

Yup! The combination of the reflection moving both because of the water and the boat itself moving. The advice that littleFella gave is excellent and will likely correct the issue.
