The atomium, one mile from my house - easy for the blue hour ;)

Not much postprocessed: level, crop, white balance, contrast, noise ninja

Perfect lighting, perfect setting, the reflection is well framed and captured and the font and placement compliments the overall effect of the image. Well done.

Its a lovely shot, very balanced and polished; but wouldn't a post card have "atonium" or some such descriptor on it, since this image is not the classical image of the city? I know its not a major point and more of a graphic design issue than a photographic one, but I think it will hurt your score.

Very good, it certainly works for me.

Good ol' Atomium :-) I remember being there for the World's Fair, which tells you how ancient I am.

What a gorgeous sculpture/piece of art! WHat is it? I like the reflection and exposure. Really nice. Your choice of font is nice too. Maybe if you had composed it so it wasn't so centered it would be a bit better, but it's pretty good the way it is.
