I like this a lot. I feel like you could have a good afternoon of shooting here if you had time, and were able to move about in the river to set up angles. This type of art seems to be getting more attention lately. These must be done by a very strong artist who likes cold wet feet.

nice image , but your exposure and compostion are a bit off.

I think this is an excellent photo. I love how the long exposure gives the river a mysitcal effect because of the flowing water.

this is so facinating! I love the sculptures and the lit up cityscape.

Thanks for all the comments.

As the river destroys the sculptures the artist rebuilds them so each time you go there's something different to look at.

I really like this, I scored it as one of the highest images in the challenge. It would have been my top pick if there was more light in the front (without loosing the perfect exposure on the cityscape.) Not sure how you could do that exactly, just a thought. Thanks for sharing this.

This is a perfect picture! Incredible depth of field to have everything so clear in both the foreground and the city so far away! Easy 10.

How creative these sculptures are. Make me want to see it in person.

Definately something you would find in a travel guide, but maybe in a different light and setting somehow. A nice one anyway

This is a beutiful place. Good viewpoint. Maybee the sculptures would look more interesting having some more light?

This is a very interesting photo. I think I would have focused more on the buildings in the background and cropped out some of the treeline background. Very good shot.
