I really like the first one and how the lights draw you into the image.

I like the 2nd image even with the little camera shake. It would be worth going back with a tripod, nice composition

Indeed great composition on both of these - as Patty said, great curves!

Just wondering what settings you used - as Hans suggested, 2nd photo would surely be sharper with tripod or monopod...

Simon, I spent every free minute I had in Melbourne walking the banks of the Yarra River. I wanted to go after dark but our AM wake up's were early and I never made it there after dark. Thanks for taking me there at night with these fine shots.

+1. This is an excellent B&W rendition.
