Porto by Night
by Jes Dietrich (jesd) 
Nikon D-300

Photographer Notes:
Lens was a Nikkor 18.0-200.0 mm f/3.5-5.6. Shuttertime was 30 sec. I used the long shuttertime to get a smooth water surface (and f/20 to get lots of details throughout the picture)

Thanks Ellen! Its a great scene with all the portwine boats that are always there, and the shuttertime of 30 sec made the water look smooth and also enhanced the reflections.

Beautiful landscape made more powerfully impressive with the evening blue light and your 30 sec.shutter time! Taken from a wonderful vantage point, this image is grand...congratulations on your win!

Thanks for the comments! And as Linn said, the blue sky contributed to the picture. The day before I tried the same scene with a dark sky and it did not look as good. Jes
