Camera: Canon PowerShot S1 IS
Location: Vila Nova de Gaia, Portugal

Aperture: f/4.0
ISO: 50

This is the riverside of my hometown, Porto, just after nightfall. These boats used to be the only way to bring the famed Port wine from the Douro valley to the caves where it was treated and prepared for shipping, mainly to Britain.
The exposure was exactly 2".
Cropped, small cloning on the lower left corner, levels, neat image, slight glow to bring out the lights.

POST CHALLENGE

Thank you very much for all the votes and comments. Two top-tens in my profile page!!! Amazing.
However I find the merit of this image should be splitted between me and my hometown. He who sees needs something to be seen, and this was a very "easy" shot to see.
Once again, thank you.

This image must really be exquisite in full resolution. It's beautiful even at this resolution. The light at the right edge is just a bit bright, maybe just to me, but otherwise it's outstanding.

What a great picture. It is well done in every way.. The boats do a lot for the picture to, they like "frame" it... Nice colors, crisp and clear... and congrats on your high score :o)

Very crisp and controlled. I wish the waterline weren't precisely in the middle.

8 - Nice scene and colors. Good interesting elements with the boats with barrels(?) (don't know the correct term for the boat, sorry). The lighting is nice, as are the lines. This just seems it needs a slight nudge rotation up on the left to get it more balanced/level, but might just be the perspective it was taken at, so apologies in advance if wrong. Difficult, but perhaps a slight variation in the cropping, mainly bottom left, else the inclusion of the end of the boat(s) (if you had it obviously - although not sure on that as does work well as is) and 'somehow' capturing more of that clouded/dusky water surface, may have made this even better in my opinion.
