I agree with Lenses In The Dark; the lights sell this picture for me, especially the ones atop the peak. I'm glad you chose to take this photograph from far enough away from the community that the buildings are confined to such a small area of the overall composition.

I agree with plw1234, I didn't think there was a place on earth like this... :) Thanks for sharing!! It's beautiful.

Very nice composition and the village lights do add to the effect without overpowering the image. Love how still the water is and the reflections of the lights off of it.

Do you mind if I ask where this shot was taken? Thanks.

Wow, this is a fantastic shot. The water is electric. The cliffs add nice contrast, and then the sky is just on fire. Thanks for this submission!

I was so glad when I saw this in The Loupe, and immediately voted. Now I'm even more happy that I can download it! Excellent shot!

I love the masterful understatement in the picture description - you're much too modest: this is a place to marvel at natural beauty and you've certainly brought that out in the picture!

How do you guys pull up these "tags"?

Thanks for helping the noob.

Wow, this thing looks alive. You captured it all -- composition, colors, and a fantastic, unearthly vibe. The haziness would be annoying in a different shot, but it gives this one a festive warmth thanks to those village lights. This will live on my laptop for awhile. Really nice work!

Good for a swim and jump from one of these stones around. Do not tell me that is shallow! In any case, you did a great job there.

Finally a sharp photo with a smooth, non-gradiented sky. This is how it's supposed to be done.

Lord Thought it's not not a good idea to jump on this one. There is another complex of pools at 100 meters good for that.

Nice shot. Just watch for those blown highlights in the reflections. Did you use a GND here or multiple exposures?
