I’ve taken this photo from Bolghatty Island, night view to part of Ernakulam with the High Court of Kerala building at the right side.
Ernakulam refers to the eastern, mainland portion of the twin cities of Ernakulam and Kochi in central west Kerala in south India. The city is the most urban part of Kochi and has lent its name to the Ernakulam district. Ernakulam is called the commercial capital of the state of Kerala.
Ernakulam was once the capital of the Kingdom of Cochi. The city is located 220 km towards north-west of the state capital Thiruvananthapuram.
Please refer also notes to my previous photographs.

Good morning Miro,
very nice the night shot with the mauve lights to make the scene even more effective and adorable.I like the created reflections on the calmly surface of the river as the excellent quality of the photo.

This kind low light shot always remains as natural attraction to the eyes. The long exposure has produced some rich contrasting color against the dark night - the deep pink in particular strikes the eye even more. I think you've done your best here with the feeling of space and some foreground to further gives the oomph factor. This is a good fun image and your sturdy tripod. Well done, Tfs

Those purple lights are quite ghostly, and their reflection is very beautiful, putting a great level of color in the shot. Some nice buildings in this scene, and a great note too!
All the best

If I remember well, Ernakulam is on the continent with an important population and Cochin is on an island and it's the historical part of these twin cities, another brillant picture of your stay in Kerala, good night view and I like that purple light, high definition, I hope you took the ferries between these places it's so good, all the best Miro, have a nice day

Have a nice afternoon

the contrast with your previous pictures is stunning. There's a variety of architectures that show the new character of the region. The lighting gives this night view a very particular mood. The two warmly lit appartments stand out and make the the interior darkness of the buidings more suggestive. Depth and details are excellent, the reflections extend the intriguing cold colours to the dark lower part of the frame. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely day,

An exquisitely sharp and noise-free night photo with lovely colors depicting interesting architectural structures. Being too impatient to carry a tripod, I admire seeing the benefits thereof and remind myself not to be so lazy next time. Well seen and excellently rendered.

You're capturing well this cityscape in blue hour by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the buildings faced to the bay with light-up and the blue/purple reflection projected to the bay. It's also the architecture with a good design for center building.

Love the colors of this nocturnal scene. Great pov and good dof with nice details for an evening shot. Very well done, tfs.

A well managed long exposure capture at night with frozen water that acts as a mirror to the colors of the illuminated buildings
Warm regards and tfs

I love nightshots and this is pretty good. With respect, having looked at your camera settings, I would have changed them significantly. Noting that you used a tripod, there is no way I would have used the ISO6500. The noise in the dark parts is noticeable. I would use ISO100 to 200 at the most and an aperture of at least f/11 and an exposure of whatever the meter dictated after that.
Thank you for sharing, have a lovely Friday
