Another great shot from your favorite place, eh? It doesn't matter to me that I have already seen this great image earlier. Still hands down. 10.

I'm hoping to leave comments on as many photo's in this challenge as possible... out of (currently) 1113 images, I gave 90 of them an 8. Your image was one of those 90, placing you well within the top 10% for this challenge.

Lots of nighttime cityscapes in this challenger, but this is one of my favourites... the light trails on the water add a little extra dimension. The place loks really vibrant and exciting. Nice shot.

Good luck for a strong finish in this challenge.

Good one. Nice work.

Hmmmm....not sure if I like this one more than the tilted one ;) ! But the colors are awesome, the exposure very fine and the glimpses of the water vehicles passing on the water provide great leading lines. A lesson in night photogprahy for sure and very well done!

Beautiful night shot. I like the blue sky and the stripes in the foreground.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Voted earlier coming back to leave comments now. The long exposure that captures the cars going by as nothing but light trails perfectly complements the picture of the city light at night. Why? Because it plays into the idea that citylife is fast paced; it is lights and action. Things do not move at a snail pace but can travel at speeds of light. Color and details are wonderful. You especially captured some wonderful defined details on the buildings in the backdrop. Great DOF that captures the look and feel of the busy city. Great job!

Although I think sometimes citscape/night shots are overdone on this site, I like this one. Very colorful and sharp
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2009 01:46:22 PM
neat exposure!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2009 12:19:19 PM
If this is the same person that has recently won with a similar shot, I think this one is a little too crammed for me. the other ones were Composed a little better.IMO

Interesting and has idea.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2009 03:29:34 PM
Good one. The late blue hour makes the sky still slightly blue, the curved light's lines in the foreground are very dynamic
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2009 10:29:54 AM
I always love these, one of my favorites this challenge.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Wow - Excellent Photo. You must have been very happy with this.

Nicely exposed, the lights are not blown to the point of blur.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2009 01:19:30 AM
I love it! The exposure is so perfect! Anyone who has attempted night photography can totally appreciate the flawless perfection of a shot like this.

Best cityscape so far. Love the tail light lines leading in to the city over the shutter polished water. Congrats.

I don't think this one is as nice as the other two ribboners. Still very well executed though.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

It's pretty again. Nice and sharp.

Not voting yet.

Like the sky and the light trails on the road. Maybe a little more editing work would make this pop a little bit more.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Have you ever been to that Gothic looking building in the heart of downtown? If not you should check it out. Inside there is a 4-6 story wine cabinet, and the waitress gets hooked up by wires and essentially flies up into the air searching for the bottles of wine. It is quite the sight to see!

Oh yeah, nice shot :P

Very lovely colors in a strong composition. Great capture.

Good timing to capture the movement.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

The tilted one really worked with the image and having seen that one first I just can't love this one as much. I do like that I can see the wake of the boat.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 08:41:29 PM
wonderful colors
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 07:10:53 PM
Great clarity and colors for a night shot. I like the contrasting vertical and solid lines of the building with the sweeping curved lines of the lights over the water.

Very well done, its tough getting even lighting across such a vast area with a long exposure and you did a great job capturing this! Beautiful!

This is great work! Very interesting. Crisp detail. Impressive.

Incredible shot Andrew, love the trails of light.

I remember a similar one from another challenge. Seems to be a bit more motion blur in this one as opposed to the last though.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Wow, are those lights from boats? That's really amazing, great cityscape!
