This is a familiar shot of Long Beach that I have taken and shared with you all before.

The first shot I took like this (called Smooth Water) was pretty nice, but being a perfectionist, I could not help but to try again.

I really think I like this version MUCH better (thanks to leaning my D90), and it seems the refections are much stronger as well.

The sky pretty much looks the same as my last attempt, and that is due to shooting the DAY AFTER the rain...when there's little or no smog...hint hint to all you night shooters.

Anyway, I really like THIS version, and as always, I hope y'all like it too ;-)

** Please view THIS version to REALLY appreciate it. **

    I love it, Ahmed. It is so sharp and colorful. The reflection brightens it so much. Very very beautiful capture.

    This is absolutely beautiful Ahmed!!! Your reflections are stronger and they are magnificent!!! You know, it isn't just the d90 camera taking such good photos, it is the man behind the camera and your knowledge of how to set the settings.
