Sorry, I missed this image. It is indeed a a scintillating beauty and a great contender. A very attractive wall hanger. Congratulations on your top 10 finish.

Superior technical quality of a fine nightime image. This image will place very high in voting. A ribbon is possible here. Clarity is phenomenal, it has great detail and the reflections in the calm water are spetacular.

Only two small items. You might chose to crop just a "smidgen" off the bottom of the frame compositionally. There is some haloing along the treeline of the near horizon that you should get rid of for printing.

Kudos to you for a great capture.

a great night shot,the tree is offputting i think and a crop of the bridge from the right hand side of the tree would've been almost perfect - for a night shot - but i think just because an image is at night - doesn't mean it portrays darkness, in reality you're capturing light here.

I do wish that tree wasnt there - not to say it should be cut down *love to the tree* but i would have liked to see the bridge end.

The soft skey and bridge lighting is very calming. The colored light take away from that feeling if you ask me. Damn bridge designers.
