This was the first night shot I have ever taken. I should have used a different aperture setting but I was really pleased with the way it turned out.

a bit soft on the clarity...would like to have the lights be super sharp in focus

Love the lines and colors. Well composed. I wish the noise of the sky wasn't so obvious.

The houses on the row do look very beautiful at that time of the year - and the reflections just add to the beauty. This is a nice capture but there is one big thing that really mars the beauty of the scene. Heavy noise that appears in the night sky and the dark portions of the river. It is a mottled mix of red/blue blotches. Either a good noise reduction program will take care of that or lowering the ISO to 100 or even 50 to reduce the noise when taking a nighttime shot (of course then you will have to lower the shutter speed to 1/2 second or more that would call for a tripod to get a steady unblurred shot)

This is really quite amazing...the lights on the water and the outlines of the houses. Well done!

Very well done, the basic simplicity and clear, sharp lines balanced by the rippled reflection should make this one a winner. Colors are vibrant with a hint of night sky over the trees in the BG.

looks like it was taken with a camera phone. I like the frame of the photo, but it pretty much ends there. Seems grainy, out of focus, very dark, and lacks a focal point. best of luck
