This is an amazing shot. I somehow missed it, but couldn't help but notice it in your profile. Definitely a good choice on the centered composition, and the clarity is stunning for a night shot.

Jeffrey! This should have finished in the top 10 or 20 for sure! This shot is flawless! Stunning! You are SO GOOD at these types of photos! But top 30 and a 6.5 in a Free Study: Not bad!!! :)

Gorgeous!! The reflection is amazing - Nicely done!!

Neat work. Does it really need the lights at each side of frame? I can see why the answer might be yes, but they seem to lead to a distortion of composition, being not quite equi-distant from the memorial.

This would have really done well in reflections!
