A wonderful composition, it just looks like another plannet. Excellent framework of colors and light Kylie. Soft silhouette in the background and illuminated structure in the foreground are looking marvellous. Well done.

Thanks for sharing this nice image.

Wow this is stunning, lovely colours and reflections and sharpness.
Well done to you.


Welcome to TL, love the comp and stunning colours, you have a good eye, thanx, M, (*_*)

It's in Florida... Hummm it's surreal for that fact it give me the water is frost with that long expo.. Little waves were eliminated in the movement details and the colors are great!
I enjoy that experience!

Hello Kyle.

Very nicely done, Kyle. I like your composition and the light is superb; I particularly like the green on the house on the right as it is different from other sunset pictures. The star effect at the back is quite neat. Well done!

Hi Kyle,
wow this looks amazing, what a great color scheme. Very well composed, the POV and the exposure are fabulous. Very well done.

hi Kyle
Thanks for sharing this nice shot with best colour and POV .

Hi Kyle, Brilliant photo, its sharp and the composition is spot on. This picture works for me. This may be "nit picking" but I think that the bright green on the right could have been toned down as it competes with the light towards the right.

Hello Kyle.
What a stunning colours, amazing exposure time.
I like it texture of water and great reflections, good work.

Beautiful tones, calm water with a touch of haze on the surface - this has an 'oriental' feel to it.

Really beautiful picture. Can be a good wallhanger.

Hi Kyle,

This is a very impressive shot!
I love the combination of colours here, the red sky, the blue/grey tones and I especially like that little starlike light in the back.
It's almost surreal :-)
Great composition, sharpness and POV.
Great shot!

I think your long exposure is what made this phot unusual and beautiful. It has that character of the last ray of the sun fighting the darkness of the night and the few artificial lights. This is very nicely done!


beautiful mood created here kyle :)
i like how everything looks silky smooth here
excellent control of the exposure
well done

Hi Kyle.

Another of your vibrant colored shots.Great POV and nice DOF.I am not to sure about the light in the mid left. Tends to focus attention from the scene.
Yet when I look again I like it(the light). Puzzling.
Well done.Thanks for sharing.
Best wishes,

Hi Kyle,

WOW!! What can I say?? I'm speechless!!!! Amzing beauty!!! :)

that is sooooooooooooooo brilliant and the little pinpoint of light just makes the shot hang right..
strange tones from artificial lighting are sometimes hard to predict
i like this a lot!
ps have you heard of reciprocity failure..dont know if it affects digital

This is absolutely spectacular. The colors are so unrealistically beautiful. Amazing image!!!


VEry nice! The yellow lights really make it unique!

Beautiful compo, colours and light, great clarity and reflections. Very nice photo.
