I had several ideas for this challenge but Iíd have no time to shoot them and Iíd be away for the weekend. I woke up at 6am a couple of days to try to shoot something before work but the weather has been nasty and I ended up going to work empty-handed. I finally managed to get this shot after work, while waiting for a friend. It was raining, it was cold, it was dark (I could barely compose) and I almost gave up on the shot. Iím glad I didnít, and that the effort paid off.

Thanks for all the comments and nice words! :)

Did you use a ND filter on this to get the 4 minute exposure, or was it just pitch black outside?

It's a great picture but I don't think it qualifies as a remake of the original.

Well, this one's in the great tradition of semi-shoehorned "Deja Vu" shots at DPC :-) I'm not criticizing, mine's a bit the same way, just sayin'...

The original is a REALLY bad, daylit beach scene. This has in common with the original exactly three things: water, sky, and tons of blue. But it's a night shot, it's an urban waterfront shot, it's a city-view shot, none of which the original are. So how do I judge this?

It's an excellent image, I like it a lot. Foreground is terrific. As a response tothe challenge, it's not so successful IMO, but that's just me. I'm gonna give it a 7 for now; if the original had been a bridge-in-BG shot you'd have had at least an 8, maybe a 9. Nice work! I may bump it later, depends what else I find.
