Thanks and apologies to those of you who voted on the previous version of this! The majority opinion was that the watermark was too obtrusive - so here's a new upload with a much less obtrusive version in the hope that it meets with greater approval...

This is the TV tower in Duesseldorf - one of the city's principal landmarks - from last summer. I'd actually gone out to shoot the funfair across the river and was doing so, but as the exposures got longer my gaze started wandering... I happened to notice the moon rising over the harbour like this and liked the appearance of the different light sources.

Technical details:
Exposure: ISO 100, 13 secs. @f8
PS Elements: cropped slightly and levels adjusted.
Sharpened/bordered/framed.

Brand:Canon
Camera:Canon EOS 30D
Lens:Sigma 24 70 mm
Recording media:RAW (digital)
Title:Night Light

I think this is a cracking image the colour, light and subject, but sorry to say that the inclusion of the text spoils it, if you have a need to sign your work why not create a border and put it in there, just my opinion no offence intended

No offence taken - I appreciate your comment!

I personally don't have a problem with copyright texts over images (mine or anyone else's) - the text isn't part of the image and as long as it doesn't cover a critical part of it (e.g. the moon in this case), it doesn't affect my enjoyment of the image itself. The issue of copyright has become so important these days that I would have thought more people would use a watermark on their images and feel the same way about the issue as I do... This would however appear not to be the case.
