    Of those two first photos I prefer the second one by far. But then I don't care for the fashionable cotton-wool water. I like the glisten, the ripple or else the calm mirror of real water. That second one has a lovely expectancy about it, a journey about to begin. The water in the foreground sends a little shiver of anticipation down my spine, I can almost hear it lapping against the bank.
    Did you swim over to the other side to get that last one, Thijs???
    Oh, Ok, she turned.

      Note: my post above was in reply to those of Thijs at #178 et seq. I took too long in posting!

      The enlightened palm trees are impressing. This is a good idea! The rest is a bit too much (think about energy consumption). But i understand that they are very proud of their numerous new buildings.

        I'm not sure if he palm trees are "enlightened" but they are certainly well lite.

        One of the reason why there are so much lights in buildings seen here might be because Singapore is a trading centre and there are a lot of traders working on European (-7 or 8 hrs.) or on US times (- 12 hrs.) shedules.

        There are also a lot of residential flats in the downtown area. It is part of the plan to have mixed usage to avoid a "dead" downtown, like in many other major cities.

        "enlightened": I should check the dictionary from time to time before typing... "illuminated" was the word i was trying to express.

      A couple of night-time, well twilight / blue hour, shots from beautiful Maastricht.

          Yep - we generally choose the day boat in both directions now - tends to be a little quieter, and the restaurant is in full swing - as well as the cafeteria. During the day the cabins are much cheaper too, so you can have a little luxury as the North Sea slips past.

          Yes, understand that. We live about 3 1/2 hours from Harwich, so it works well for us.

        Glad to see this thread again.
        I don't know which of the two photos above I like best. The first - a relative close-up - is attractive with the pattern of different shapes along its length and that delightful cut-out silhouette towards the stern, illuminated from behind. More light fills the bottom part of the photo from the reflections in the water. You wonder - has it just discharged its passengers or is it firing up ready for the night trip?
        Yet the second image has such an end-of-day air of stillness about it, with the faintest vestige of light left in the sky, echoed by the even fainter glimmer of foliage on the near bank.
        Maybe that second one wins, for me!
        Let's hope that a few others will be spurred on to add their night shots.
