    I like the second one best, I would've prefer to see the 1st one a little closer. I like these shot, you did a great job.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks Michael. Both are cropped a bit. I kept the crop small on the first one to keep as much color as possible, plus I wanted to keep the bridges on the right visible. I might explore cropping more from the left though.

    I didn't have very much time to work on composition when I took the shots as I was returning home after dropping the grandson off and I had already missed quite a bit of nice sky up to this point.

    I also see that both pictures are a little muddy/unsharp. I remember a post addressing this in the past (I think) so I'll have to research to see what I may have done wrong.

    In like how you caught the reflection on the water.
    In the first shot I like the reflection of the bridge, and in the second I like the lights. If the water does freeze there during Winter then you should consider taking the same shots then.
    Thanks for sharing!

    I love the second one, everything looks so still and the reflections are great.
