I think you did a wonderful job - the blue is stunning indeed, and I love the golden lights below!
Ayush Basu: You are too kind Elizabeth! Just a couple of minutes before, there had been a faint magenta/mauve glow above the those buildings in the distance
you did a fantastic job with it Ayush... my Blue hour shots don't include such colourful cityscapes....petersmile
Ayush Basu: Thanks Peter, your blue hour shots are magnificent with the grandeur of nature and do not need these man made cityscapes
I think this picture is just stunning! postcard perfect! blue and brown are my fave colour combos in other peeps pics, a friend of mine takes stunning blue skies with brick walls that drive me crazy lol
Ayush Basu: Thank you so much for the kind words Elaine!

This is very creditable Ayush but because I don't take these sorts of shots myself I can't really give you any sensible advice

Works for me! I like the contrast between the blue of the buildings and the amber from the street lights. I like the light trails, too.
Ayush Basu: Thanks a bunch Alan!
Wonderful picture! Ayush.
Ayush Basu: Cheers mate!

I will confess that I know nothing about blue hour images. I know when the blue hour is, but that's it - so I can't help with comments. They can http://www.bluehoursite.com/ I did check some great blue hour pictures and the main difference to yours is that they have more dramatic subjects and some includes movement of clouds or water. Otherwise I believe you have done well.
Ayush Basu: Thanks for the valuable input, Louis. I am hoping to try this at some more spots.
The blues and the yellows do it for me Ayush, and the light trails. I've not heard of blue hour pictures before, but you've inspired me to try!
Ayush Basu: That's what I like about SC, we end up motivating each other. Do share your results smile
I love the blue hour. I am not used to big buildings in my neighbourhood (unless they are filled with cows) so the views during this special time are very different.
Ayush Basu: Perhaps better than having big buildings filled with people grinThank you Mary
What a coincidence, it's good to see your shot Ayush, I'm going on a blue hour shoot at the end of this month! smile
Ayush Basu: Then I will look forward to your posts later this month!
I confess to knowing nothing about blue hour. I like your picture though
Ayush Basu: Then you are like me grin Glad you liked it
I think it is alright Ayush, the sky is not completely dark which i understand is the golden rule for this sort of shot.
Ayush Basu: Appreciate your approval. I will try this on some more occasions
Wonderful! This is my favourite time of the day.
Ayush Basu: I can see whysmile

Very nice...lighting at the road is superb with 32s...As you know I love-live Roads tongue
Ayush Basu: Plenty of light at the streets, I did not have to do much
I like it, Ayush - difficult exposure timing I would think.
Ayush Basu: Thank you Tom

Beautiful blue. I love this shot.
Ayush Basu: Thank you very much Beth
I think your image is terrific. I like the way the blue twilight bounces around the buildings, contrasting nicely with the warm city lights :^)
Ayush Basu: Thank you Doug, for your observation. I guess that's the contribution of higher up pov

I think that is a perfect blue, a very nice photo.
You can be very proud of this blue hour shot, Ayush, and I think you've inspired more than a few of us to give it a try.
