It looks so painterly!

No .exif details but it looks like a hand held shot with a wee bit of vibration. Don't know if it was possible to bump the iso speed up a bit to give you a faster shutter speed, if not it's worth carrying a small bean bag around with you to rest the camera on where a tripod might not be appropriate.

@Curly: Thanks for your comment. It made me realize I had posted the wrong image, without the info. I have fixed that. I appreciate the suggestion. I do carry a small tripod, and did not think to use it. A small beanbag would have been excellent and I will get one for future use. The setting I used is "night handheld". It keeps the shutter open longer and compensates somewhat for the shake.

Nice colors in this evening picture.

Steven from Chicagoland, United States

Beautiful colors that you've captured in this nighttime shot! It's amazing how much light and color is reflected off the water when the light sources are so small.

Adela Fonts from Barcelona, Spain

A good image but perhaps lacks sharpness ... and perhaps need a higher ISO! Best regards, Adela

Alun from cheshire, United Kingdom

Really lovely idea, just needed to be taken on the tripod, the very high iso 6400 has given the grain in the sky, if its on a tripod you can lower the iso for a longer exposure. I really love the colour of the lights.

Steve Rice from Olympia, United States

Lovely colors and reflections.

Judy aka L@dybug from Brooksville, FL, United States

I love the colorful reflections, and also Curly's comments re: stabilizing the camera. These shots are difficult, especially if taken from a boat.

Phil Morris from Saskatoon, Canada

I am not looking for perfection so I see nothing but the beautiful and terrifically coloured reflections. There are programs that are free for fixing the grain however, and if you like I can steer you to some very good ones. I have had a lot of grain in some of my night shots and I use them to remove the grain at times and does a good job. Superb photo, I love.

@Phil Morris: Please share! I use an imac, so need to make sure apps are mac friendly.
