    Congratulations on your first place finish. This image is so inviting, it made me want to visit the Chicago River Walk in person! Just beautiful!

    Congratulations - in more ways than one - your first time to pick the challenge isn't it? Well deserved win!

    Congrats on the 1st place! You are correct - that is a super lens. Years ago, I was seriously considering buying that lens but ended up getting the Pany fisheye instead. I may still get the 7-14 someday...

    I am thrilled to have a first place finish. I appreciate all of the nice comments on this image. I want to acknowledge the Lumix 7-14 mm zoom wide angle lens, which is responsible for the ability to sustain such sharpness throughout the image. It is an amazing lens and well worth the price. Again, thank-you for your votes and helpful comments over the years.

    Just love the light - certainly achieved great depth of field - wonderfully balanced in that nothing dominates and there are no weak areas - really good.

    Great decision to shoot during the blue hour. I was going to ask what time of day you'd shot this until I read your extra info. I love the colors presented here and the framing is a good choice. High in my favs.

    Nice continuum of close to distant detail, and a great night shot. A definite favorite.

    Like the use of the plants as the leading lines drawing you into the depth of the image.

    Beautiful! My top favorite. Blue hour is the perfect time for this shot. The composition is very good with many lines converging into the distance.

    the water and the wall draw the eye across from left to right.the blue hour ? when the air reflects the start of the lighting

    Very attractive shot and certainly right on theme. I like the composition you have chosen and the time exposure adds a restfulness to the scene. Love that 14mm!
