Just returning from my business trip to Frankfurt am Main (Automechanika 2006). This is my first shot from this trip.
Most international city in Germany, the largest financial centre on the continent. In brief, to the smallest metropolis in the world, in which there is a lot to discover at close hand. Almost one in three of the people living in Frankfurt do not hold a German passport. The view of Frankfurt’s bold high-rise architecture is just as attractive and yet very different.
Their facades are made of glass or cement. Sometimes they are narrow, sometimes round, sometimes pointed, sometimes with and sometimes without an antenna. They have given Frankfurt the sobriquet of ‘Mainhattan’. Back in the fifties, the Kaiserdom with its 96 metres was still the highest building in the city. Today, the Commerzbank Tower, with its antenna, stretches almost 300 metres into the sky. In total, some one hundred high-rise buildings tower over the city, most of them bank and office buildings.

Excellent night shot. Perfect details and sharpness and excellent colours.
ps. I have olumpus c-770 (almost similar with yours), and I have noticed its night shots are perfect.

The mirroring of the buildings is perfect, the long exposure is a great choice.

Hi Dan. Nice photo of Frankfurt's evening skyline; the four-second exposure results in a crisp rendition of the architectural detail and the lights, and the reflection is a nice way to amplify the impact of your photo.
By the way, if you change the location to just "Frankfurt" (instead of "Frankfurt am Main"), you will see a city plot point for Frankfurt show up on your Germany map on Thursday morning.

Nice night shot Dan. City lights reflected off water are always a winner. Good diagonal composition and I like the multicoloured lights. Thanks for sharing.

This is good, excellent sharpness and perfect exposure.
Next time include some last light of the day, which is called the blue hour, but here already you did a great job.
Very good picture...well done.!!
