Well done Eric.
I love the long exposure here, it gives the mist a surreal quality.

Nice capture, exposure, crop and processing.

Long exposure to get that misted effect, I'd guess - from the intensity of the lights and the brightness of the sky. Has a dreamy quality, for sure, and the tonality captured on the structure is well done.

Great composition and perspective in this shot. I'm guessing it's long exposure to give the effect of the water which looks good too.

love the composition and perspective as well as the colors. I think the mist on the water is the icing on the cake for this shot. Without it, I don't think it would have the same appeal. Good Luck

Not sure if it's overprocessing or what, but somehow this doesn't look real to me....more like something drawn on a computer.

I like the bottom half a lot..the top half seems a little harsh in comparison

beautiful example of long time exposures

The pier photo is sort of an old standard, but you've put a new and stunning twist on it. You're very creative and talented. Beautiful!

8 - Very nice. Criticism; 'if only' that main light were not 'cut off' at the top. Colors are very good, very nice overall 'feel', like the perspective, just that 'crop' really, perhaps eliminating it altogether (but then you'd have the 'empty pole' trouble), so who knows. Like the good retention of depth at the end of the dock/causeway/jetty/pier/boardwalk/'line'.

nice work with the long exposure, really done vert well but just blew the whole look of the images by choping off the first light. Still will rate it high.
