Congratulations on your top ten finish. Had you not fotgotten the spare battery this may have finished in the top 5. Nevertheless, the image has power and a very nice friendly feel. Good work.

Congrats, my favorite!


Thanks for the compliment! And I obviously agree with you. :)

Isn't is such a shame when you have the most beautiful cityscape, and you can't get a clear shot because of some branches? Unfortunately, they ruin what is an absolutely stunning background.

A nice twist of the classical skyline photo. Well done.

would have cropped the foreground
nice capture though

Nice. Really nice overall tone. Would not change this in any way - except maybe get rid of that green light in the water. I do understand that you could not have done that in this Basic Editing Challenge. Good job!

Very nice picture. I think cropping out some of the dark space at the bottom will draw attention more quicky to the happening lit city. The framing is very nice though, it brings a closedness to what would otherwise be just like any other waterfront picture. I really like the colors in the night sky too!

Good shot, but a little bit more closer would have been nice

Smudging on either side doesnt work for me. Otherwise very nice.

My absolute favorite skyline picture. I love how the foliage "frames" the city, the sky has a wonderful movement and softness to it, the warm tones are very appealing to me, very nice!

This one is more than average work

I love the way you've used the trees to frame your shot. The city looks beautiful.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Lovely view, shame your foreground is sharper than the buildings which are too blurred. Not keen on your colour balance. Composition feels unbalanced.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Very nice. I'd like to see just a bit less of the framing on the left. Beautiful exposure.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/04/2005 06:12:05 PM
Nicely framed
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/04/2005 05:51:22 PM
Nice view, the city scape seems a little small but it is ok.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/04/2005 03:46:52 PM
VERY PRETTY! I like how it is framed by the landscaping in the foreground.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/04/2005 02:57:52 PM
To me, there seems to be a little too much dark foreground.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/04/2005 10:08:17 AM
The tones and framing along with the lights make this a strong 9.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/04/2005 10:05:35 AM
Very pretty . Try a more rectangular crop to cut off the black at the bottom a little. Just a suggestion.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/04/2005 09:58:33 AM
This photo is exciting. The city looks cool under the silhouette. You could even zoom in a bit more on the city.

This is a winner (in my book anyway)! I really like the feeling of being safe in the quiet country side and just looking over at the hustle and bustle of city life. Very nice work here!! 10

Very appealing night shot - like the framing too.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/04/2005 02:58:58 AM
Excellent framing...is this Seattle? 8
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/04/2005 01:33:51 AM
the trees framing the shot at the bottom as well as picking up cloud detail from the reflection of the city lights make it one of the more interesting city at night shots
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/04/2005 01:00:42 AM
Pretty. The leaves make a very nice contrast against the sky. My only complaint is that the lights glare a bit, but there is probably no way to have gotten around that with basic editing.
