The picture was taken from Montjuďc hill more precisely from on of the vantage point located on the end of the area.It provides us with excellent view over the port,the Maremagnum shopping-centre and leading to it Moll dEspanya.
The Montjuďc is a hill located near the center of Barcelona. It features a large number of attractions including the Spanish Village, the Magic Fountain and MNAC, one of the city's most important museums.Montjuďc Hill has borne witness to, and been the focus of key events that have shaped its personality. The first such event was the 1929 International Exhibition held in Barcelona which fostered the development of the zone. More recently, the 1992 Olympic Games brought about major renewal.

A sharp night shot of Barcelona's waterfront. Montjuic is one of the city's most memorable parts and gives some of the best views. I like the silver arches in the foreground and the way the gold and blue lights compliment one another.

You dared and shooted from Montjuic at night! Even that the weather conditions were not the best, but you know, you got a good pic. Nice contrast of warm and cold lights too.

Wspaniała panorama nocnej, pieknej Barcelony. Światła miasta, domów, lamp i świateł mostów, jeszcze dodatkowo odbitych w wodzie rzeki, wszystko to spawia cudowne wrazenie. Świetnie wybrany panoramiczny format obrazu. Doskonała jakość.

What an intense and vivid blue you have here, and an impressive skyline to book. Love how the towers raise to the left of the image, and the warm golden light with those traffic trails in the lower left corner. barcelona really is the city of a million possible images, I cant wait to go back again someday.
Thanks for sharing!
bayno (18344) 2012-10-10 8:13
I recognized the POV from where you shot, really a nice view, you set your Camera perfectly closing all the diaphragm obtaining the good effect of a star on the artificial lights, very nice panoramic cut and a razor sharp...well done my friend...

A fabulous night shot from Montjuďc. I like that you have included a glimpse of the sea. The foreground area provides a nice golden colour tone as a nice contrast. A nice mixture of new and old architecture. A well exposed shot excellently taken from a well chosen viewpoint. Excellent work, Krzysztof:) TFS. Have a nice evening.
Best regards, Erling

Good evening Krzysztof,
Magnificent night scenery from the known location in the vibrant city.
Excelent 30sec. exp., allow to see many details on dark night.
Fine shot taken,

Quelle joli panorama de la ville a l'heure bleu, parfait dans la netteté , la prise des lumičres et le POV choisi, compliment
ACL1978 (7511) 2012-10-10 12:09
Nice wide urban view, Krzysztof, and perfect at 30 seconds for the exposure, brightening the scene and enhancing the great colors throughout. I like how the scene fades the further you go into the BG - nice bright yellows in the lower left, to the sharp blues and whites, and then increasingly dark to the skyline. And certainly this is a vantage point on Barcelona I have not seen before! Thanks for sharing it.

Ciao Krzysztof, congratulations for your 100th post on TE, fantastic light for a fascinatingblue hour, wonderful colors and splendid clarity, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio
abmdsudi (50554) 2012-10-11 4:28
There's wow factor here and has to be one of your best night photo to date, credit to you! The most vital element is the exposure which so well controlled, nothing appears to be blown out and lots of details retained in the shadowed area. This looks like fairy tale land to me abound of colorful lightings fitting the wondrous night scene as natural attraction and real treat for the senses. Great shot, TFS
fabbs99 (17129) 2012-10-11 6:59
Its an amazing piece of work.I have not able to indulge myself in such lowlight photography.But I am planning to go for Night Series very soon - inspired by you. Great clarity and sharpness.The intense luminosity from the skyline is bringing out the beauty of the colors in the night.Well done.

macjake (64768) 2012-10-11 12:44
Its not too often we get to see a F32 used!
guess it brought out the deeper regions of the scene very well indeed.
and as for a blue hour, THIS is certainly a blue hour!
I really enjoy these photo's because i find myself scanning the entire landscape, trying to pick out familiar buildings in a city i've never been to before!
excellent sharpness, and its too bad you couldnt get the entire car lights inside the frame at the bottom left! almost got it haha! :)
thanks for showing us a new view of Barcelona

wspaniala panorama. Doskonale niebo dokladnie o najlepszej mozliwej porze blue hour. Ladnie asymetrycznie pokazane z tym wysokim budynkiem na lewo od srodka. Mnostwo ciekawych rzeczy mozna tu wypatrzyc. Ciekawy kontrast chlodnego niebieskiego i cieplego zoltego swiatla. Obecnosc wody choc minimalna rowniez dodaje uroku.

panoramica ampia su questa parte della cittŕ che risulta brillante per la qualitŕ dell'immagine.
jcpix (13846) 2013-06-19 19:19
Even without a specific object or resonating feature, this is quite a delightful image, most notably for me because of the colors. At first view, I thought there to be the dark blue and yellow from the artificial lights...but taking a closer look, there's really quite a range of blues, some green, and even a touch of rose color that all blend so well together for a very pleasing visual over the port. In fact, there's even a touch of blue highlights along the buildings spanning the width of the frame that help differentiate the city from the sky. A very clean and precise execution of technical details, and the long exposure gives the lamps a starburst effect adding a bit of "pop" to the scene. All very subtle elements that have come together for an agreeable result. Have a great day.
Friendly wishes from Az.,

a simple and elegant composition in a well chosen panoramic frame. The depth and the clarity of this night view are exquisite. I like very much the fine layers of your composition and how each area is defined by a different dominant colour. The details are superb, admiring the view or making our way into it are really captivating. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely evening,
