Wow, outstanding vivid colors Adri. This jumps right out from the thumbnails. Fantastic colors in the skyline, and nice reflections on the water. The little bit of cloud in the sky is a nice bonus too. Lovely shot!

Amazing colors! I agree with the previous comment, and would like to add that all the lit windows in the buildings give it a very surreal look. looking at those buildings, you'd almost think they were digitally rendered :)

HI Adri...beautiful colors and tones...excellent focus..this is a great shot.

Hi Adri,
wonderful clarity & sharpness,your chosen point of view,makes for an interesting & well composed image.I like the inclusion of the pilings they break up the large expanse of water & add
ionterest to the scene. I also use a Nikon D80 but if I were to use an ISO of 1000 as you did ,the image would be full of noise,did you use another software to extract it or?

Hi. Wonderful nocturnal shot, lovely colours. The cloud in the background adds further interest. Phil

excellent work love the blue ness of the image nice pov
tfs regards bryan

Fantastic shot Adri, the posts in the water make a good lead into the scene, excellent colours and clarity. Best wishes

Nice one, Adri! Good blue tones in the sky, nice lead-in lines and I particularly like the white cloud in the centre, I think it adds a little something. Pretty shot :-)

Ciao Adri

You create a lot depth and good perspective.
Nice picture good sharpness and clarity.
Composition and presentation are excellent.


Hello Adri,

I find it hard to express what a great shot this is!
The f/g posts make a fine introduction, leading, as they do, to the line of yellow lights, which take the viewer, at great speed, to the fabulous array of illuminated buildings.
This is a great 'blue hour' shot.

Have a good Sunday,
Bev :-)

Hi Adri,
Zo te zien heb je een prachtige tijd gehad in Singapore. Een schitterende plaat genomen op het juitse moment (blue hour). De weerspiegeling van het gekleurde licht is schitteren. Toch twee opmerkingen: de plaat staat een tikkie (ca. een graad scheef) en een meer panoramische uitsnede maakt de compositie sterker naar mijn mening, heb een WS gemaakt om duidelijk te maken wat ik bedoel. Niettemin een hele fijne aantrekkelijke plaat Adri!

Hi Adri
fantastic blue light. great effect on the brightness of colors. good pov for catching the wonderful skyline with marvelous reflections.

Hi Adri,
Perfect specs to have obtained such a inspiring strong coloured image.Colour balance is really striking and the reflections adding more points of interest to an already excellent image.Full marks here.
