Just a quick note: this type of image is best viewed on Flickr, full screen, on black background.

The image is rather impressive. Strong colors and silhouettes contribute to that.

Nitpicking: the composition is rather centered, which leaves the right side a bit too "light," ie, imbalanced. Also, as much as the blacks contribute to the saturated colors, I would like to see a bit more opened shadows.

This is a nice image.
The intense colours are what makes this image.
Perhaps opening up the shadows may contribute, but, who knows, maybe the OP tried that already and decided he didn't like what he saw.

Thanks for the feedback, tried your suggestions, opened up the shadows and had to turn exposure down, and it gave me exactally what we see here, but with opened shadows of the bridge. Much appreciated..

On a side note, I noticed after I loaded the picture, it could of used a tad more leveling of horizon to the right side. That kind of bugged me.

Dont know how I could help the right side, other than maybe a differnt crop, but not sure how that would look. I do like it as it is.

That was going to be my only criticism. I didn't mind the blocked shadows, which I felt contributed to the mood, but skewed horizons irritate me as well; they're so easy to fix.

Agree Jeremy, its just a simple easy correction, which I since posting, have made.
