Very nicely done.
Night photography is rather difficult. But I think you've done quite well for yourself here.

I just recently purchased a new camera and I'm planning on doing some night photography with it this weekend. We'll see what I come up with!

Great shot, though. Really.

Classic indeed, but it still looks good. Can't to get a camara that'll take good night shots.

Mate, brilliant shot! I find it incredible how flat the water is so flat!

The water manages to look like glass. Everyone I've ever seen do cityscapes like this one forgets about the water completely, and if they don't, they never manage to make it look quite right. I like the way the light seems to be radiating everywhere. On the whole, it's a very fresh, welcome take on a classic shot.

The colours look very natural, which is something I've never quite managed to get on night time 'cityscape' shots. Almost perfectly exposed too. Some of the light is spilling over, and looks blurry though. Not sure if thats due to overexposure, or slightly off focus. But it's minimal.

I had my white balance set to Incandescent which I've found makes the colors of night shots look natural. The shot is not perfectly focused.. I was focusing manually but should have used a different AF mode. Thanks for your comment!
