I've just started trying night photography within the past couple of weeks. As with all my photos, any comments/suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Very little post editing in Picasa2:

cropped a crane out of the photo
slightly cooled color
sharpen slightly
increased the highligts a little bit

I know the bar was really high in this challenge, but I think this is just so beautiful! I think you did a fantastic job on this!

Thanks so much for all of the nice comments and the votes!

Now, if I can learn how to add text and borders to photos, I'll post higher scores in the future???!!

Pretty as is. But if there were stars above, and the bridge were moved down a bit, you'd have a ribbon-quality shot. If you can't find stars, or they don't come through haze, add 'em and sell it as a print. :)

great shot. Light on left is distracting. No border of font to depict postcard. 4

Great pic, looks more for a big print over a desk than a postcard. But great detail over the bridge.
