Congratulations on your win. This is such an amazing photo. The reflection of the lights are what make this picture exceptional. Your work is sublime.

This is an amazing photo.
I love that you were able to capture those beautiful building all lit up that way. Then to do it at a really dark park of night to capture those same beautiful buildings reflected in the water.
Truly breathtaking.
Congratulations on your win for this. Thanks for sharing.

Jet lag or not you got yourself a pretty good shot for the competition! Your fine composition gives us an enjoyable look at your lovely scene. Exposure is good and sharpness OK. Well done and good luck!

A beautifully framed shot. The night lights illuminate the buildings well and the reflections could not be better. Best of luck in the contest.

Comment from El-mundo


A fantastic, bright, light (despite being night) rhyming description of this amazing sight. Sorry, that honestly just came out like that! (I added the 'rhyming' bit however). The reflection is like a silver mirror reflecting fantastically back and the cropping is precise and tight, capturing all the details closely within the frame in a near symmetrical image if it wasn't for the slight blur of the water. Great long DOF, sharp clarity and a predominantly brown and yellow row of tall buildings spreading the centre of the piece, the dark sky above almost unnoticed with the tones and lights of the man made spectacle. A great shot and great entry for the competition, great work and best of luck in the competition :)
