Great golden tones, very sharp, excellent exposure and the kids are a nice touch, after all (first I found them distracting, but then, I think they add to the scene).

the people in front of the city give the nightshot a special touch, well done.

Tim, this is incredible. Especially after I found out from where you photographbed it. I took a 256 mb card full of photos from GW Park for this challenge and not one turned out. The sun was in the wrong place. What length of telephoto did you use? Excellent! Something to stive for. Jo Ann

Great view!

Very pretty and I think the 'audience' silhouettes add a nice touch.

The people in the bottom left are a nice touch
09/27/2002 04:12:00 PM
great exposure deserves a good mark with the lines and thirds as good as it can get
09/27/2002 01:37:00 PM
I can't compete with this....
09/27/2002 10:02:00 AM
This is a golden photograph. Marvelous.
09/27/2002 09:11:00 AM
Beautiful composition and that 'wish i was there' feeling :-)
09/26/2002 06:56:00 PM
Well done.
09/26/2002 04:20:00 PM

09/26/2002 03:36:00 PM
beautiful capture. like the shilouettes. 10!
09/26/2002 12:36:00 PM
Very nice detail, composition. I like the golden color.
09/26/2002 10:43:00 AM
excellent nighttime cityscape... The silhouetted people in the lower left corner add a very nice touch to this shot... I don' t particularly like the large amount of darkness in this photo along the bottom... did you shoot any of this same scene without that? I suppose that was a tradeoff to have the people in the shot :) - setzler

Fine photo. JEM

Great shot, well done! To my opinion the best "city by night" - picture in this challenge. The people in the foreground are meaningfully inserted into the scene and they are additional increasing the high quality of this photo. - nds - 10

This is very beautiful. The golden tone the lights give makes for a wonder effect.
09/24/2002 09:00:00 PM
the folks are a great - i am glad you didnt ccrop them out - because they lend to participationl of the viewer - the golden color is strong and my eye craves the blue and blk of nite - but it works well as a cast of golden incandescent effect - great pic! 9 sgtpepper6344

I really liked this shot... However, the tent is to yellow.
09/24/2002 02:12:00 PM
Might be worth trying this in black and white. Really nice skyline.
09/24/2002 10:42:00 AM
i love skylines and water, and this is a very nice nightshot of both. the yellows look warm and inviting and are nicely reflected in the water. the sillhouettes of the people adds to the scale of things. i can almost imagine myself sitting there with them, philosophising about life and such.
challenge met -- yes
composition / appeal -- good
technical -- good
overall -- 9

If it weren't for the people in the foreground this would be just another night skyline image. Great execution of a brilliant idea 7 sjgleah

One of my 10s this week, this shot is superb. Looks like a poster you would see in a travel agency. lhall-10

This is a beautiful photo - it is so clear! I would be so proud if I took this with "my" camera! Well Done!
09/23/2002 02:23:00 PM
Big city. Good luck to you. Score 8 Justine
09/23/2002 02:11:00 PM
I would have adjusted the white balance for the color of the average light in the frame. - good skyline.7
09/23/2002 09:03:00 AM
WOW! Gorgeous colors.
09/23/2002 01:09:00 AM
Very nice night picture...I just wish that you had put in your title what city this is.
