Very impressive, well done! Regards, Jurgis

thanks Jurgis - this is taken from the surrounding hills, and unfortunately the road now has a barrier that closes just after sunset so it would be difficult to repeat (even if I was in South Africa)- but I'd wanted to take a shot when there was enough light left in the eastern sky for the distant landscape to show up without the street lights dissolving into a blur - and I was happy with the result. My only regret is that the picture fell foul of Panoramio's procedures and was never reviewed for GE - but thanks for finding it and commenting - it's a happy memory as well as a satisfying image for me.

That's hell of a nice "blue hour" photo. No wonder You like it so much. I'm giving it a Y* and a "Best of" as to it still being reviewed, try sending a link to admins of post it in the forum. All the best from Poland, Lukas

thanks very much for that LukaszJ. - I know I should have sent it in for re-submission, if only in fairness to Graaff-Reinet - but since another view from a similar viewpoint was not accepted at the time I didn't feel like bothering, and have never got round to it. - But thanks for your Y*, Best of and kind words - they are all joyfully recieved.

Glad to hear that, but pleasure is all mine.
