Cool looking bridge that connects Covington, KY and Cincinnati, OH. This was taken at 3:30 in the morning and all I did to get the blue sky is adjust levels and curves. After that, just resize, unsharp mask and save for web.

I have yet to get a REALLY good shot of our bridge. If I get one as good as this, I'll definitely be satisfied. I love the clarity and the colors. The star effects add interest as well. The composition feels just a bit cramped at the top of the bridge to me, but nothing major.

Excellent shot - I'm glad it finished well.

Someone gave you a 1? Sheesh... senseless trolls. This is fabulous... no noise at all, fabulous lighting, and I love the starry twinkles. :) Wonderful image, and congrats on your finish!

This is a killer shot and should have ribboned in my opinion. The composition seems clean and uncluttered and it's a good sharp shot. Hopefuly a sign of things to come. Well done.

I love this. It reminds me of Tower Bridge in London, of which I have fond memories. The colors and the bursts of light are very nice.

This is Cincinnati, yes? Anyway, beautiful shot. I love the lighting on the first arch. My one criticsm is that I wish the sky were a bit darker to make it feel more like night.

Good shot. Lights are a little too hot.

I really like the colors in this image. The evening sky is fantastic and you still managed to keep the highlights from completely blowing out.

A 10. It is so stunning. One of my top three pictures!

Good pic, composition is good, and so are the colors and exposure, but your focus is soft and you have noise in the sky.

Pretty cool stuff, love the coloring in this shot and also the composition. Kindof a shame this is basic editing as the blown out top columns on the bridge kindof draw too much attention for my taste and that could easily have been corrected in advanced editing so I am going to assume you would have done so if you had the chance and vote as I see the image should look. That means an 8 from me, I really like this shot.

Really nice shot, the gradiant in the sky to the star shaped lights.
Fantastic composure.
This will do really well i think.

The lights catch my eye, but the color variation and contrast is very lacking. Nice border.

The rich blue night sky is awesome. Very good composition and crispness as well. This has to be a strong ribbon contender.

I find the right half extremely interesting with the warm colors contrasting the cold cables, but the left half falls apart for me becoming too busy and blown out.
