A close up of the Perth city skyscrapers during blue hour with reflections in the Swan River.
Perth has a population of around 1,750,000 and is the State capital of Western Australia. Taken from South Perth. You can see the Barrack Street Pier & Swan Bells (the yellow green light at right) near the waterfront in the distance.

Brilliant blue hour, reflections, colours, patterns and textures. I would suggest cloning out the two cranes on the left but very good as is. Best wishes.

a real light show this, full of amazing shapes and a compelling reflection. Love the lines of colour in the water. An accomplished blue hour shot and glorious presentation.
Have a great weekend - regards Brian.

Oooh ahh, this is stunning. The coloured striations, the reflections, the luminosity. Not much I can say by way of contructive criticism, just admire.
Thanks for sharing

Nous sommes à l'heure bleue et les lumière font briller tous ces beaux gratte ciel de la ville qui semble pousser comme un champignon si on se fie aux nombreuses grues.
danyy (0) 2012-04-27 7:15
quel dommage que ce ciel soit si bruité car il est suberbe dans ses couleurs, un des meilleurs moments de la journée pour la photographier.
Un clin d'oeil à ces immenses grues, plus impressionnantes que tout le reste.

Excellent view of silhouettes of skyscrapers, perfect blue hour photo, beautiful reflections
brianmcc (6219) 2012-04-27 12:38
what a cracking picture. the blue effect in the sky has been perfectly captured, while the clouds add further interest. the lights in the buildings are quite incredible and an amazing visual effect. the water looks wonderful while the reflections are perfect creating excellent straight line patterns.
pierrefonds (65278) 2012-04-27 12:46
The reflections on the water are assets to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the lighted highrise buildings. Using an ISO of 1600 and a slow shutter speed have a special effect on the colors. Have a nice day.
npecanhuk (74878) 2012-04-27 20:43
Attractive urban & architecture picture!
I love all those colors!
TFS - congrats,
siolaw (38292) 2012-04-27 22:59
Great, almost hypnotic graphics of this blue hour shot in perth, colours are just fantastic and the framing with a narrow stripe of reflctions is excellent (maybe crop the last building and cranes on the left was an option?)
axiotea (21651) 2012-04-28 0:14
An effective compo with a good tight frame around the buildings with their coloured lights reflecting so well in the water. Fine graphical touch, great luminosity and of course a lovely sky. I think i might have clone out the crane on the left side and it is what I did in a ws, hoping you don't mind ;)
Have a nice WE

very nice modern city by night. Good shot during the blue hour. I like the colours and reflections. Good presentation.
Have a nice day.
ourania (44326) 2012-04-28 0:33
a beautiful blue hour view of the waterfront with very pleasing clarity and fascinating colours. I love the lustrous reflections on the calm water. The scene looks vivid and serene at the same time. An excellent and spectacular composition but I also love the low view of the boats and the quay. Well done and thank you!
All the best, have a great weekend,
jusninasirun (17162) 2012-04-28 1:17
This is fantastic blue hour shot with well metered exposure for fine details and tone. Love the light lit on almost every building in the frame.
Thanks and have a great weekend.
macjake (67060) 2012-04-28 6:26
I'm glad i opened up your gallery today to see this one.
here we have another blue hour, but not in China this time!
these yellow honeycomb windows are one of my favorite subjects for city skylines in the blue hour - they look great don't they!
love the colors in the water too.
a good variation of heights, and an attractive view point.
siudzi (34141) 2012-04-28 10:34
Wow! What an impressive image of this wonderful city view at night! Really wonderful capture executed so perfectly. Great job. Very well done.

Good morning Chris,
Thought at first this was NYC from the east-River, but the title tell its Perth. Fabulous modern sky-scrapers thousands light-bulbs on blue-hour photo, and the reflection as a nice bonus.
Immediately I would snap a picture of the water onky and lights mirror upon. Merely an idea.
Have a nice friday,
