Nice shot with some silky water. I had to double take when I saw this. It reminded me of this shot I took from Butlers Wharf (which is where you shot this from too I assume):

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/8860/thumb/38467.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/8860/thumb/38467.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

I still think your shot should have been in the top 3. Fourth is good though. I would respectfully ask your opinion of my # 29 First Light Photo. It is my best place yet. You have a good eye and your opinion would be most valuable.

Thanks,

David

I love your shot - which instantly reminded me of mine:

Your angle is good with a real feeling of the expanse of water, and of course Tower Bridge looks great as usual. The bright areas are ever so slightly over-exposed.

A beautiful picture. Lighting, composition, clarity, colors - all excellent. I like the color reflections in the water. I can picture myself stopping the car to get out and take this scene in. Very well shot - great work! :-)

Simply beautiful. Perfect focus, lights abound. The composition and choice of subject are great. I don't think there's anything I would suggest changing. 10

The detail and focus make this shot. I assume you used a tripod for a long exposure. It worked. Good shot. Wish I could see the bridge in person.

I like the sharpness of this shot, I also like the calm and reflections of the water. Well done.

Hey... Did David Blaine take this? Just kidding.... I love the reflections on the water, and the electric crispness of the bridge. Postcard perfect!

Wow - the first picture I look at is a 10 - I hope the rest are as good

Very clear image, the water is good, the soft reflection is a nice touch. The glow of the lights on the bridge is a good highlight, and the shadows at the top contrast nicely. The 'star' lights are minimal enough to add something and not distract. Compositionally it's good. A well-executed bridge at night shot.

just...WOW !
This is one of the best night photos I've seen in a long time. The lighting does make the photo. The reflections and angle/composition are perfect ! 10

Brilliant, great composition, the exposure is just right - the stone work detail beautifully rendered. Well done!

I love these shots of the bridge!
It just seems a little to centered for me?
Real nice vote still.
