Oh man. That is stunning. I've not mastered night photography myself - but this is fantastic.

That means Tampa is like Pittsburgh: Not much to look at in the daylight but when the sun goes down it becomes a jewel.

Fabulous shot!

This is simply stunning! What an amazing shot you accomplished with this. The lights, the color, the clarity...all are absolutely perfect. In my opinion, I can't find a single thing about this photo that I don't like, or that needs to be changed. I love this shot!

Amazing night shot! I like the two blue "spotlights" that shine straight up from the cylindrical building as it gives the image a futuristic look to it.

Very nice shot, the clouds were in a perfect location and really adds some contrast to the sky. Congrats!

Hey
Great shot of the City. I love the night lights on the water. Being a redneck from Texas don't get to see may city night shot. I am using the same rebel you are using, I will have to see if I can get a perty night shot of the trailer park to send you. LOL

Beautiful night shot. I wish the shore line wasn't quite so centered in the shot. Lovely colors and clarity.

Top tenner for sure. Not much criticism here. Good interesting blue lines...???

What kind of settings did you use to get the lights so bright and crisp? When I try to take pictures of the NY skyline, I have some difficulty with this. Especially when the memorial 9/11 lights are going. The blue lights always come out looking slightly grey.

Wow -

Very pretty. Love the buildings and the lights and the reflection of colors. Seems blurry, though. Would have liked to see it more sharp. Overall: 7

My only 10 this challenge. What a great shot! Absolutely stunning reflection and sky. I won't even mention the PS word, because it stirs so much fear into the hearts of those around us, but if any of it was retouched, it is perfectly fine with me because the result is stunning!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

What a gorgeous skyline! This is a fantastic picture, and would make a fantactic print... Perfect - the reflection in the water is especially splendid. I have nothing constructive to add because i seriously can't think of anything that would improve it. 10 out of 10!

I like much: The composition - The sharpness of the picture in a low light situation. - The reflection on the water.
I like less: -
Score: 9

Beautiful, absolutely beautiful. You picked some great buildings to photograph, and the two beams of blue light shining into the sky really add that "wow" factor to the shot. And to top it off, the reflection is great. 8

Nice in all ways

Truly beautiful, professional-quality shot. Perfect exposure, colors, and I like the "smeary" reflection in the water where all the colors really come alive. Nice sky, too. 9

The reflections come out very well!
Good job!

Wonderful reflection shot at just the right time of day (night.) The last vestages of blue in the sky make it really pop.

Love this shot. Very pleasing composition, good exposure, nice reflections. Just one minor thing I see that could improve the shot is a slight rotation CCW - sorry for being picky. Gave this one of my highest votes.

Great work

Very nice. I'd try to pull out the bright blue block in the lower lefthand corner because it pulls my eye away from the focus, but the rest of this photo is great.

i figured that night city shots would get it, but i just couldn't bring myself to it...nice job 9
