Thanks for all the kind words! I kinda thought the smoke was an interesting addition, but I see the reaction to it was mixed. I actually had a few shots when the smoke wasn't coming out of there, but there were other elements of those shots I didn't like. I'm really going to start petitioning for ribbons to be handed out for 4th place :)

Perfectly wonderful shot! Can't wait to see your details - looks like a spotlight left side. One of two "9's"

The colors are set off well against the dark sky, nice blurring in the foreground

This is almost it. I think its just a little bit hot, but I wouldn't be surprised to see this in the top ten. Nice work

Blurred imagery in upper left distracting for me. Very nicely done though.

Clear and nice. The only thing would be the smoke behind the bridge that detracts just a bit.

NIce. looks to be a long exposure that ends up with a few blown out spots, especially the red sign on the right, and the tower on the left. (mine had exactly the same problem for this challenge :)). It's a really fine line between overexposure and getting the building detail. I think you did an admirable job of it. Love the addition of the water. Really low noise too, which is awesome.

Great pic, is that smoke on the left hand block? tends to spoil it.

nice shot...but the title should tell what city
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Definitely meets the challenge. Nice exposure though a touch darker may have been even better. I like the details in this.

Great dof and cropping.

What is that ghost-like thing on the bridge there at the left? Very groovy shot! The water is magical, and contrasts with the harder lines of the city so nicely! Congratulations on a wonderful photo. 10

Ooooh, the best city shot in the challenge. Nice color, interesting water.

Classic shot...just beautiful. The lights are awesome. Congrast on a shot well done.

I like the steam(?) over on the left side. The shot may be a bit overexposed, but that's only my opinion. I might have cropped the bottom up to the edge of the calm/moving water.

I like the shot but there is a haze on the photo.
