Post challenge:
This was taken by chance, 15 minutes after the challenge was announced, after dropping Skip & Nina at the airport after their recent visit to San Diego.
The boat was an element I actually wanted in the shot, but from the reaction, seems dodging it to show it didn't go over too well. I liked the dimension it added instead of just plain skyline.
Oh well. I would do it all over, the same way. Compressing these kinda shots is a challenge all in itself, while retaining detail.

Thanks for the comments and feedback.

good detail and color...your sky could of used some more color to match the rest of your photo. Great long exposure.

Not much you could do about it, but I find the boat to distract from this shot. I might have cropped it out.

I find the boat in the foreground to detract from the main subject of your image. Excellent exposure no less. Colors add to the flair of this image...GL

Just lovely. The night lights are beautifully reflected. I might crop out the boat on the left, but other than that, a great shot!!! Thanks for the invitation.
