For ease, I'll just post it here:

Remember to use the picture icon on the reply toolbar to post your images.

Apart from it being subject to motion blur (which some may find appealing), the image is quite pleasant.
I like the PP colour work, and the moody atmosphere portrayed here, though there isn't much of a 'wow' factor in the rendition of this scene.

It's good nonetheless.

Thanks Ash fro your comments. Actually, there was no change to colour in the post-production at all, only an increase in shadow areas, and noise reduction. the sunset added the reddish cast.

I like it. It may be a little soft, but that can be a good thing in shots like this one - fits the mood.
