Thank you all for your support, It really means a lot to me! : ) I´m like most of you for sure, deeply in love with this great hobby - photography. It´s funny how something like photography can change your view of life.
When I made this shot, it was starting to rain a litle bit and midninght was only fiew minutes away. I was surprised how well it turned out and outshined all previous late night photos I had shot.

Thank you all again, cheers ; )

WOW!

It might be a little tilted, but I don;t think so, its just that the lights get farther away. My only 10 for this challenge. Good job.

Amazing colors.

Not bad really but the horizon line is , to me , too much in the middle of the frame I'd prefer more water or more sky.

I love how the lights lead my eye in this photo. Great colors and great clarity.

Those reflections are just unreal. Splendid colors and a beautiful photograph.

if only we could see the top of that biggest mountain, wouldve made it better in my opinion... very pretty photo though, mystc

Awesome contrasting colors! 9

One of my favorites of the challenge. I am assuming this is really far north and it is a late night shot. 8.

05/05/2005 05:37:13 PM
sweet. I like this one for its scale and revistability.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/05/2005 04:47:40 PM
Beautiful!!! Great job on the reflection
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/05/2005 02:02:54 PM
If this doesn't ribbon, I'm eating my hat. Seriously, the best photo in the challenge in my humble opinion. Location, reflections, symmetry, lights, perfect exposure, all add up to a blue ribbon. Wish I was there.

05/05/2005 12:58:44 PM
NICE! 10
05/05/2005 05:37:51 AM

Very nice. The reflection really gives it a nice atmosphere
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Nice! I like how the lights kind of suggest icicles. Very cool!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I really like your composition and the colors are beautiful. It seems slightly tilter to the left (CCW).
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/04/2005 06:09:41 PM
That´s a nice one. I have a thing for simmetrical shots (semisimmetrical). Do you think that by using a polarizer you would have gotten a better picture or is this a mood you are trying to express?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/04/2005 05:09:05 PM
a very suggestive shot. It neets to be rotate
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/04/2005 04:36:08 PM
One of my favorites, with complementary colors, blue/orange, arranged in spectacular composition, and softness upon this winter scene. Thanks.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/04/2005 02:22:04 PM
What a stunner of a picture. I do hope this will ribbon. 10.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/04/2005 01:24:55 PM
I like this image a lot, despite the skew of the horizontal line. The reflection is well done, and exposure time is right on. 8, and I'd have rated this higher for a more lined up horizontal plane.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/04/2005 01:05:59 PM
This is one of my favorites so far - I love the colors! The reflections are perfect. Great shot!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/04/2005 12:41:54 PM
Oooooh. . . this is beautiful. Mountains. Water. Blue. NIGHT! All of my favorite things in pictures! I love it!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/04/2005 12:23:17 PM
Simply amazing shot. Love the blues and the orange reflections. Besides, its a most beautiful and unusual land/seascape. I only feel your photo needs a slight rotation to the right. Apart from that, great, great shot. 10

Wow
05/04/2005 11:31:30 AM
i love the symmetry and the color of this picture. I dont think you could have done any more with this shot.

Not bad at all, Icelandic landscape never hurts an image anyway. Is this isafjordur? Good luck in the challenge.

not LATE night but ok thats fantastic view though
the reflections look like spikes in the lake-great
island?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/04/2005 07:56:48 AM
Very good photo. only could get better with a bit more dof, because the hoses in the right seems a bit out of focus.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/04/2005 06:26:21 AM
This is a nice image. Different from the usual City Lights. Nice Job.
