James, I agree with Lizzi about the lines in your composition. I would say that you have just about perfected the night shots. Have you figured out a way to stay warm while you are doing it?

Have a wonderful weekend, mon ami!

Beautiful reflections James.
Happy weekend.

Stickup Artist said...

That place always used to scare me when I was a little kid. I think it was the vastness of the inner space and the large collection of strangers. But your image is warm and stately. beautifully composed and lit. You really have a knack for the night shots and I know it must be cold out there. I really appreciate the effort behind this endeavor!

Sylvia K said...

Gorgeous capture! Love the lights/reflections on the water and the buildings are so beautiful! You do have a knack for finding the beauty -- wherever! Enjoy your weekend, James!

Lovely night reflections. I do like the contrast between the two buildings.

awarewriter said...

Superb! 30th St. Station is a beautiful building, especially since the renovated the interior back in the late 1980's.

I'm finally back. My reflection this week is subtle but it's there.

jeannette said...

Reflections in water are my preference. Can I write "Watery Relection" ?

snowwhite said...

Hi, James
I came here through ruma's "Calligraphy In The Landscape".

I'm very glad to find beautiful reflections site as I love reflections and am interested in taking pictures of them very much.

I'm a beginner in photos, but I couldn't help joining this site.

The reflection on the river in your picture looks like a beautiful oil painting.

Rebecca said...

It looks so pretty at night.

all so beautiful

Owen said...

Hey James, beautiful portrait of that grande old dame of Philadelphia. When I was going to school in Philadelphia I used to go through 30th St. Station frequently. The inside is an amazing space. There was a used book dealer in there too where I picked up many a fine volume for pennies... thanks for the memories...

Debby said...

Another great night shot!
