Great shot. I really like it a lot. I live in Boston for college and I think this is one of the nicest shots of Boston that I have seen.

Cool :). The architecture in that area is so strange and austere. I went there last July and had a great time. You were lucky to get such a great angle, and you composed it well. I love how the light strikes those buildings.

Cool perspective shot. I love these kinds of views. Color - seems pretty good to me! Focus - kinda n/a, but a sharp pic! Framing - also n/a, this is one of those type shots that you could crop just about any way you wanted. Interest - fairly high, like I said, I like this type of view. 9 Swash

This is one of the most beautiful photos I havae ever seen. I would love to have a large one hanging on my wall. This is unique and a very different shot of a city. Beautiful photography, focus, cropping, depth. I especially like how the sun shinges on the front of some buildings making them look outstanding and the rest look like they are just part of the city. Hope you can understand. This should be tops.

well, I haven't seen my neighboring town like this yet! lol.
I like how you took it from a point where the buildings seem to fan out, and then get encased by the expressway. would like to see this in comparison to another shot taken when they finally finish the big dig.... if we live that long! maybe we'll be shooting in holograms by then LOL
nice photo!

Not your everyday, average view. Do you fly a helicopter for a living?

Very interesting perspective. I could sit here for an hour looking at it.

real nice time of day to be up there, sunlight on the buildings, casting each others' shadows on each other, really make the shot. bonus points for not tackng on a superfluous border. ideal entry for this challenge, big fat ten for you.

COOOOL. The area where I used to live is just off to the right of this picture I think. :( I miss Boston. Cool shot. Low enough to still make out everything.
