I've never seen a more incredible reflection of light off water before. The colors on the bridge accent the structure wonderfully as well. Great work. 10

I really like the patterns the reflections of the lights make on the water. You have a great eye to see this and capture it so well.

Exposure=good

I really dig this one. Love the colored arches, and the tracks the lights leave in the darkness in the foreground. 8

The reflection in the water is just gorgeous. I like it better with a hair less sky. Perhaps cropped at 640X427 instead of 480. 7, just-married

I love the squiggly light reflections - pity you can't enter this in this week's challenge (Reflections)! Nice star burst effects on the lights.

Nice composition. Would be a good photo for this week. JEM

good work :) I think the exposure on this shot is just a little hot... maybe a 1 stop decrease would fix it up a little... Also, possibly tilting the camera just a tad to the right would level up the bridge and create a little stronger diagonal with the light reflections in the water... good shot :) - setzler

Love the reflections of the lights in the water, the "starburst" lights, and the colored lights under the bridge. Composition works for me, but would have liked the sky to be a little darker. lhall-9

cool relections! oops, too early...

The reflections, especially where they dwindle, are extraordinary. Lines of light doodled in the darkness. The neon underglo is wonderful and still there's detail in this very dark shot. Nicely done. 9 crisa58

I love the colors and lights in this but the very bottom movement of light just blows me away. This is a 10 all the way ! Shiiizzzam

I love the squiggles formed by the light's reflection trailing off...

I like the colors and the reflection tho the reflections are a bit bright and a little distracting. The angle is a bit weird, but I guess you were on the shore. Hmmm. It's better than most pics here, but you don't appear to live in a very exciting corner ;o) Why didn't you climb up there and moon the camera or something? ~indigo997
