This is my second night shot from Chalkis that I upload to TE.
This is Paralia of Chalkis at night. I took the photo from the Viotian side of Chalkis, near the old bridge, testing my new tripod and also the abilities for night shots of my Sony DSC-P10.
Paralia is the main amusument area for the city. It has almost 12 cafe's, restaurants and 3 hotels. Also, 2 internet cafe and several shops. Near Paralia you can find Banks, the Court House of the city, the Archeological Museum etc.
The most illuminated building at the center of the photo is Kotsikas Mansion, the city hall of Chalkis.
Paralia is a place full of life. You can drink your coffee, beer or your coca-cola near the sea, seeing the boats pasts the Evripos narrows at the night late hours. A must visit place when you'll come to my city!

Nice night shot, well composed with beautiful lights reflections, but I think the frame is a little too big, and a harder focus is in order... Did a workshop.

Hello my dear Mpampis, likes me a lot, this night picture, is pleasant to enjoy the colors reflected in the sea, as a rainbow, as a bar code that it identifies the beauty of the city, a romantic, charming effect, elengante, magnificent, magic and full with colors, thank you to share this image with us. Cordial greetings. *Ninfa Urania*

The colors are beautiful, they give a very "alive-at-night-city" feel to this image.

Εξαιρετικές οι αντακλάσεις. Φοβερά χρώματα και φωτισμός. Κρίμα που ο ορίζοντας γέρνει ελαφρά προς τ' δεξιά.

Πολλή καλή νυκτερινή λήψη, ειδικά με τόσες διαφορετικές πηγές φωτός. Οι αντανακλάσεις στο νερό είναι εξαιρετικές και η πανοραμική σύνθεση θαυμάσια. Μπράβο!!
Υ.Γ. Ευχαριστώ για τα καλά σου σχόλια, καθώς θα κατάλαβες η λήψη έγινε κρυφά, αλλά ήταν τόσο όμορφα που δεν άντεξα.
