had so much fun with this challenge. I went down to our Riverwalk on a beautiful night and LOVED shooting all the festive colors and boats and umbrellas and lights. I'm sure everyone isn't going to think my photo is as cool as I do -- but that matters not this time. I love it! And I think if the voters trash it (which I realize full well they may). . .well. . .then they are just stupid :) tee hee. . . just kidding. . .sort of.

I like the way you got little curly-cues of light

Sandy, what a cool shot, I love the way you have created the musical notes in the air through camera movement and the fact that they are dancing above the heads of the people just adds to the sense of wonderment and fairytale

The way you have still retained the colours of the umbrellas is cool and adds even more verve to the shot

Let me tell you that score isnt too bad at all (well not for us mere mortals anyway) but I do think its great that this is a photo that you love and that voters opinions do not matter a jot

When I saw this during the challenge, my first thought was it was Christmas on a warm day. The lights above the umbrellas caught my attention. I liked the triangles and the smaller lights above look like Christmas trees. I like how the people look like they've been stamped into the photo too.

Sandy, it's so pretty! I love the bright colors and the notes over their heads. Yep, should have scored higher!

They didn't trash it, but I think it should have scored higher than it did! A lovely shot - I wondered if this might be yours and I recognized the Riverwalk. Gotta say it looks wonderful blurred!

Oops, I thought I'd already left a comment here, sorry.
This is one of my favourites. It's like a painting, and the music notes just complete it :)

This is very good. You can almost hear the music, as the photo has a nice rhythm to it.

This is a very interesting shot..I love the repeating patterns of the lights. I haven't liked a whole lot of the camera shake shots, but this one is very well executed and really makes a nice photo.

This one is all about colour and repetition. I don't know yet if I like it or not but it's quite intriguing.
