6:02AM on Monday morning, East River pier at the end of the 34th street, thick fog enveloping Manhattan and obscuring the view towards Long Island.

Love the mood in this special blue hour, would have looked awesome with or without the cityscape to the right, the pier is exposed very well, very eerie mood ;-)

Hello Kristine - This is superb, the composition subtle, understated and strong. I love the richness of the blue and the warm golden lights which contrast beautifully. The atmosphere is serene and calm. One of the best shots I have seen on TE for a long time. Congratulations! Warm regards Rosemary

i'm glad seeing you again in the site after you long absence, with this beautiful photo.I like this artistic shot with the morning lights on the pier to dominates the area,just before the coming of the new day.The silhouettes of the backdrop buildings make the scene dreamily.
Have a good weekend,Danos

Wonderful shot in the early morning blue hour.
Both elements of the picture (the pier and Long Island) seem to float in a mysterious blue space.
Beautiful colour contrast with the orange lights and great reflections.
Best regards, Paul

So Kristine, you're back!
A good idea to wake up so early to catch the contrast deep blue of the sky and orange lights of the pier.
I feel cold!

I like the mystic atmosphere you`ve captured here. A well composed and balanced shot. The Manhattan skyline appears almost as a mirage in the background. Very nice work:) TFS. Have a great WE.
Best regards, Erling

nice to see you posting again
I like this one a lot, mainly because of the contrast between the yellow well lit FG and the hazy black skyline that we hardly see at the BG, all this in blueish hues
A very moody shot
have a nice WE

a beautifully composed and executed image. So full of atmosphere and tantalising light. It has a real magical and mysterious feel about it. Wonderfully controlled and presented image.
Enjoy the weekend - Brian.

Minimalist, simple, full of softness.
Wonderful colours, light and foggy atmosphere.

Wow, at first, seeing it in a thumbnail doesn't look attractive at all, good thing I clicked this picture and see what's in it. This is superb! Love the serene scene, the lighting and the buildings covered in mist, love the elegant touch in this photo! The blues are really attractive and alluring! Well handled image! Oh, I really like the stunning white frame! Definitely supports elegance! Great photo!

Hello dear Kristine
Good to see you back here, you've been missed. How are you and your beautiful bubba?
Fantastic blue hour shot, so tranquil and well-exposed. The cobalt tones are like a beautiful dream. Thanks for sharing and I wish you a lovely Sunday.

moody shot! I like that...this deep blue, the silouehtted buiddings in the horizon and those lonely lights...could be the cover for a crime novel "Murder in the Long Island Fog", right?

Good to see you're back:)! Great shot! The fog in the blue hour gives it a very special atmosphere. I like the buildings in background and the effetc of the lights. Very good composition and a very good exposure!
patdeph (35744) 2012-02-08 12:35
this is a very simple picture, in a wonderful blue, where I like the stary effect of the lights, giving a beautiful brightness to the picture.Magnificent!

You show that less is more. The darker background
and the lights on the left creates a mysterious
atmosphere ( I like that). Also the composition
is very good.

To complete the trio... wow! That's wonderful!
Exposure, colors, chosen pov and composition are at their best!
TFS - congrats,
