    You've captured a wealth of detail in the waning light. I like the way you have included the single sailboat to the left - it draws the eye across the photo.

    This is a lovely Blue Hour shot. The horizon could be a fraction higher. My fav.

    Nicely-lit night shot. Consider cropping to 16:9 format to emphasize the orthogonality (?? Thanks, SpellCheck - what does that mean? I meant the horizontal quality of the shot!).

    Impressions: Lovely night scene. The nominal subject (the boats) are in a relatively dark mid-foreground against much brighter background of city lights which attract the eye away from subject.

    Fantastic shot, it was well worth your wait in the cold! Do you remember the song "Twilight Time" from the 1950's? Lyrics from that song goes "When purple colored curtains mark the end of day, I'll hear you, my dear, at twilight time." High in my fav.

    Top shot! Although I'm not going to find it easy to settle on ten favourites there is absolutely no doubt about my number 1. This is just so beautiful! I'm glad you waited!
