Taken on 10/22/04 from the bluffs in Weehawken, New Jersey. It was one of the most beautiful sights I've ever seen.

Perfect! Need I say more? Ok, just an awesome shot. I have been to this exact location many times, but never saw it like this. Very well done!

Beautifully done. Obviously done with a very small aperture with a good quality lens. I love how the outlines of the buildings are still visible, as are the clouds in the sky. The reflections on the water add a lot too. And, perhaps I'm just a sucker for color, but the blue in the top right just adds a lot of intrigue for me. Love the image! Good luck in the challenge!

Great night exposure! Not too hazy from the lights, yet just enough detail in the shadows. A slightly more dramatic sky woudl make this a powerful image.

High quality shot, but so very common it's difficult to see any great appeal or difference in this one. Sellable no doubt.

I love this shot!
The city is sharp and sparkles, and there is motion in the river and the clouds.
Pure Gold!

Looks incredible at night. Love how the blue seems a to be a beacon. Great cityscape...

Great skyline. I wish the sky had been darker than the water, but with a city that big, I bet the clouds are never dark enough. I gave you an 8

Great night exposure. The horizon doesn't seem level though. It seems a bit high on the right. My only real concern is that the image is a bit busier on the left compared to the right. More lights n such. 7.

I love this shot. I took similiar shots in Chicago a few weeks ago, did not turn out this nice. What was your camera set up? Thanks.

A very appealing shot. I would kind of like to be able to make out the actual building edges a little better, rather than just going by the lights, but nevertheless, a beautifully executed shot. 9
