This is Minneapolis, Minnesota taken from Lake Calhoun.
I adjusted saturation, color balance, brightness, and contrast. Finally i added a small black border. There were some reeds in the water and i removed them using the rubber stamp tool in PS. Enjoy!

Colors and clarity are amazing! My only suggestion would be to crop the picture with less water or sky so the city isn't in the center of the photo.

Colors are sumptuous with these shades of blue. I like too the reflection from the sky in water with this deep blue. Line formed by the ground and these lights in background are superb.
Magical composition, Brian.

This is a rather nice composition - as everyone else has said, colours are superb. I like the way the long exposure has softened the water, it produces a very interesting effect.

Excellent job! The changes you made to it must have done just the trick, because it gives the scene a positively peaceful glow.

Very nice misty look. I used to remember people were ice fishing on this lake during winter time.

Hello Brian. A very interesting photo because it has very intense fantastic colors. I also like the composition, the idea to catch two "urban centers" one to each side of the photo is very interesting. In addition the reflections to the sky in the water phenomenal you have had left.

I love all the space that the sky and water take up in this photo while the city is comparibly quite small.
