Wonderful image, must have a great view at 100%, I reckon theres something mischevous going on in one of those windows... Best shot in the challenge I have seen so far and such a good lot of thought gone into this. Good luck

Great idea for an image. I might have preferred it if it were a closer shot, with fewer windows, but more details of what is happening inside.

great overall photo. Looks a little soft. either that or shrinking for web took away some detail maybe? the thing cutting into the windows in the bottom right is a little destracting. Overall good feeling of the photo.

This image really draws you into the shot making you feel like a voyeur. Great photo but now I'm thinking of getting a telescope. ;-)

I really like this shot, but wish it was much sharper. Image is slightly wonky, and colour balance seems a tad yellow.

I have taken a shot of City Point in London that looks very similar to this. Should have thought to retake it, as I like this. Only criticisms are slight tilt to the right and slight lack of detail, but very hard to achieve on 640 x640. Might have retained detail by losing the unnecessary frame and slightly tighter crop.
