I didn't get to say much about my photo the first time around -- I was submitting against the deadline. The weather on the weekend before wasn't that special, so I didn't even go downtown to see if I could get a shot. Tuesday the weather was great, so I left work early, rode my motorcycle the 25 miles to downtown, and started shooting. I had several locations in mind, and this was the last one. I think I stood there about an hour, shooting various shots as the sun set. At about 7:30, I deemed myself done, raced home, and quickly flipped through to pick one of the 200 or so shots I had taken. By the time I finished editing it, and a few others (see the out takes in the forum discussion My Urban Landscape Out takes, I only had about 5 minutes left to choose which I really wanted to post, post it, and give the description.

This was shot with no tripod, but not hand held either. I rested the camera on a hand rail. I rode my motorcycle downtown because I knew it would be easier to park, but that excluded me bringing my tripod. I was able to bring my lenses though, but for this shot, I used the old trusty Canon EF 28-135mm f3.5-5.6 IS.

Great Lights, excellent exposure, I know the horizon shouldnt be in the midlle, but maybe you should have lowered it a bit, little too much water in the forground-- still an 8

Great reflections, good colors, I like the feel. This could be a poster shot.

Nice pic but I would have cropped out all that water and made a nice panormic shot.

Nice, very clear shot. Maybe a little less water (though the reflection of the tall buildings does have a nice effect).

Beautiful -- great exposure and reflections! I might have been tempted to zoom in a little closer and eliminate a little water, but it's still a 9 in my book :)

Excellent color without the lights 'blown-out'. I love the reflection on the water - makes it like you are almost standing in the water looking at the city.

The golden tones are just great! Balance between foreground and subject creates dramatic feeling.

Maybe San Diego will buy it as a postcard! Lovely to look at, and lots of space in the foreground to write San Diego. Otherwise I think I'd crop the foreground some.

nice composition

Great night shot, and wonderful composiition. You've managed to avoid blown out highlights and keep detail in the water surface which is very impressive.

There are a lot of brightly lit night skylines in this challenge, but this one is a real grabber.
