WooHoo, snuck into 5th place! This is taken at the Berkeley Marina, which is where we had the Kite Festival GTG a few year's back. The pink lights are coming from all the docks in West Oakland, and the spaces in the clouds let in the moonlight. Pretty neat to me at least. Here is an outtake facing just a little more to the right and the clouds lose their color.

Lovely sky and I rather like the slight distortion in the bench. I do wish there wasn't a sign or whatever that is next to it, so if possible (I know it isn't always) I might have tried a few different angles to see if I could eliminate it from the scene, leaving the bench alone to witness the faraway city.

Beautiful sky. Long exposure? I like the perspective too.

Lovely photo. I like pretty much everything here, but especially the way you captured the sky and the horizon.

What a gorgeous sky.

Great shot. The white stuff (trash, rock, whatever) on the left and the one bigger spot in the middle pull your eye away from how great this photo really is.

Nice shot. Sky really adds to the shot. I think the negative space on the lower left detracts from the shot.

The sky and the bench looks good. Pity that there was no interest on the ground to the right.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

A nice sky, whatever is behind the bench is a little distracting. Still a good image.
