Gorgeous shot, although one that doesn't immediately scream out "night" to me

nice duotones..

This is fantastic. The only one I gave a 10 out of all 282 images. I love the tonal reflection in the water, and the lonely figure on the headland. Very little noise which is great for the low light. Love the mood, love comp, love everything about this one. Rock on.....Blue ribbon I'm sure.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/16/2006 05:48:01 AM
Lovely use of the figure. You and I both have that little, tiny figure... Wonder which of us will score better?
