Bev drove me over to Camden,NJ last night and I took some shots of the Philly riverfront from there! THANKS, BEV! Dinner was great as well. Camera on tripod and manual remote. All the exposures were from 15 to 30 seconds.

Post: Convert from raw in PS elements 3.0. Curves. Cloned/heal dust spots. NeatImage. Sharpen. Resize. Sharpen. In reviewing my possible entries for this, I saw a faint but discernable line towards the top running almost the length of the image.. Went back and use the heal tool on that to lessen its effect.

Thanks for the comments and the GREAT score for my 100th Challenge of 2006. A note about safety in Camden....Take your posse! No really. My friend Bev drove me to the base of the Benjamin Franklin Bridge right at the end of the walkway way along the Camden waterfront. We did not see or hear a soul. It was almost peaceful. I was more worried about Bev's car and Bev at the end of the road by the Bridge. But she got out and took some pictures of her own. Really. Not a problem. I'd do it again....but not for a while. I readily admit to being crazy...I just haven't lost all my marbles...well not yet. Thanks again!

Congratulations on a great shot Robert! One minor thing; the image looks looks like it's tilted clockwise a tiny bit.

What a BEAUTIFUL, stunning photo! Those night colors in that water! And the crispness of every structure. This is an amazing night photo!

Sounds like it was a good thing you stayed safe while shooting it :)

Beautiful shot! I like the bridge leading in from the right.

You went to Camden at night? Scary place! I just read it was #5 on the list of most dangerous cities.

the reflections are tilted on the left side. Is that lens distortion?

Only a brave person stands in Camden at night to take a picture of Philadelphia. You get points for that alone. I have never seen a picture of Philadelphia from that angle. I love it. The reflection looks great.
