Dedicated to Craig, one of my favorite shots during my trip last year which has been long overdue! haha!
Shot taken from Stanley Park. I guess the view is coal harbour, correct me if I'm wrong.

A big WOW from me on this, amazing shot. Such an impressive skyline and reflection, and I really love the little yellow lights in the wonderful blues of the image. Brilliant!

Wow, not really expecting you on this kind of shot but indeed quite successful attempt
To me, most of the shot is in the small black clouds in the sky
A beautiful mirror effect at blue hour

Great symmetry and I like the reflections of the building being almost abstract in appearance.

Beautiful blues and a fine cityscape Matt. The yellow lights twinkle in the impressive reflection. Very fine shot. Congratulations. Warm regards Rosemary

Magnificent landscape, taken with great skill.
The effect of the long exposure is very pleasant and original. The skyscrapers appear oscillating over the water but this is totally calm ! Great effect

Nice blue picture ! The long exposure makes an interesting blur on the reflects that, to me, adds attraction to your picture.

The blue light makes the photo very special.
Very beautiful also reflected.

Excellente photo, à dominante bleue, de Vancouver. Les reflets sont splendides, le cadrage et l'exposition parfaits. Tu as choisi le meilleur POV possible pour prendre cette magnifique image.

Salut cher Matt
Oooh la la! Tres belle. And how lucky for Craig to get this beautiful dedication and such a high quality photo of his favourite place in the world. Love the blue tones, the lights are incandescent. It's weird you know: on my PC the image looked perfect, but on my laptop the colours look a little faded. Very strange. But I'm sure you got them right.

beautiful blue hue that still did not understand where it comes from, beautiful reflections and skyscrapers, perfect framing and a lovely title for a gorgeous shot...regards,
ChrisJ (100052) 2012-06-05 5:04
I wandered around there too, but was up on the Burrard Bridge by blue hour. Even saw a skunk outside the hostel near the False Creek Ferry! Well composed using the rule of thirds with excellent symmetrical reflections, & nice sharpness. A nice homage to Craig too. Tfs!
berek (40015) 2012-06-06 8:36
Really beautiful picture. I love strong blue ton and impressive reflections.
josepmarin (57831) 2012-06-07 11:43
a nice dedication for Craig, by means of this fantastic capture at the blue hour of his beloved city.
The graphism of the fantastic architecture that we see in this framing, with the beautiful reflections on the water, the lighting of the city, and especially, the blue tonalities that flood the image, they create a superb composition.
jemaflor (85980) 2012-06-08 11:08
Great result bravo ! So lovely light capture and reflections on water, nice blue tones.
Silvio1953 (124525) 2012-06-10 10:22

Really impressive work. The quality is outstanding for such difficult conditions.
The skyline and its reflection create an amazing setting.

it must be an amazing place for a walk at the blue hour. Obviously we know it pretty well from Craig's photos but it is never enough of the great photos of great places,
