    It's really cool. :) Something seems crooked for some reason...Maybe it's just me. I think it's because you weren't in the dead centre of that bridge?

    It's the street in the foreground, the horizon is level. I think you might need to play with it in PP. Though I don't know how. :)

    There's something quite unwholesome about the statement "I agree with meat" :lol:

    But on a serious note, I also agree with meat in that the composition is slightly flawed. When taking a shot where you are going for centered, symmetrical look (often works quite well in a lot of situations) you have to be quite careful to make sure it is actually symmetrical, centered and level, otherwise it will just look a little awkward. If you cant get into a position that allows this you will be better off going for a more unique composition and probably following the rule of thirds.

    Okay! thanks for your comments. I think it looks crooked because the quays are not right.

    Aside from being a bit crooked I think it's very nice.
    I really like these night pictures that are so dark that all you really see is the lights.
    It makes the town/city almost surreal.
    It's beautiful

    Looks great........... the world is not perfectly square; and so neither do all photos need to be so..

    This one is a great capture. Since it is a time exposure, it may have benefited from a few more seconds to get greater movement of the lights around the streets.............:D
