I can't find a picture of Portland I don't like. Figures, since it's the coolest city in the history of ever.

Matthew, This is an absolutely superb shot. Very clever viewpoint with these crumbling stakes in the foreground to add interest and give a sense of scale. Masterly. Toni.

Wow, this is fantastic;
I love this part of Portland as everyone seems to be so friendly, and the view is amazing when the Willamette isn't clouded with muck. I've never seen it at night time in real life but I'm sure this photo does it justice. :]

this is really nicely composed with the natural part in the foreground which is darker and then the blazing lights of the city in the background. so many little details have been captured it;s a pleasure to look at.

I took two pictures from the marina just near there, but the quality you captured in this is just stunning! Did you use a polarizer?

Thank you :) I did use a polarizer, but I found that once I started playing around with the white balance, my photos no longer had a yellow overcast (half of the photos I took that night looked similar to the colors in your photo). I also brought out some of the shadowed details with curves to create an image with more dynamic range :)

Thanks for your reply. Also what did you end up white balancing against for this photo?

I didn't have any cards on me so I ended up just going through the presets and seeing which looked best.

You're lucky you even have cards. :)

If you make a 1024x768 version available to download I'd set it as the background on my laptop. :)

still not that great, it's HDR and i shot it freehand (i don't have a tripod, but i usually use duct tape which works better than a tripod anyway)
