Taken from Treasure Island outside of San Francisco. I have been waiting to do this image for a long time and have seen it elsewhere and also here before. (Thanks BrennanOB).
In PS- In RAW editor: adjusted white balance, exposure, saturation. Rotated, increased blue channel, decreased red channel. Increased red saturation, decreased everything else.

Meant to use polarizing filter, but brought IR filter with me instead :(

a bit old hat. However the building far right would have been more interesting to focus on

terrific photo

Very nice. I think this night shot has just the right exposure. Enough light to see the buildings, but no so much that they become blurred.

Lovely long-exposure. There are plenty of night-time shots in this challenge and this one is definitely in the top 20% of them. It has a really strong focal point, isn't over-exposed and has some detail in the sky and water. Well done.

Seems like you were not at a straight angle for this shot. Rather uninteresting as well. Nice try.

Beautiful lights, sharpness, and composition. Slight angle for bridge might be better, but probably difficult to impossible, as a guess. Nicely done.

Cracking effort and interesting composition. I think that the sky could have done with a little burning in tho. Still a nice job tho, well done!
