savannah would be better-you sitting up there in atlanta just like a spider(sorry i watched gone with the wind again today-but that darn traffic light should have gotten out of the way-nice picture,that parking garage got in the way too-next time stand on a ladder on foot and shoot above the traffic light and parking garage-just my opinion.

Thank you to all that commented.

I really wasn't going for just another skyline of Atlanta. If I were, I would have gone to a better spot for a better view of the Atlanta skyline. My intent, obviously not understood, was to show a cross-section of what makes Atlanta the very diverse Atlanta. If MLK crossed Peachtree St (any of the 20 or so of them) I may would have taken a photo of that.

Looking back, I was at "The Ted" Braves Stadium (they lost last night to Houston....boo!) I probably would have done better if I shot a photo of The Ted. I think more people would have "gotten" that!

This is how we grow! :-)

Without the sign and the light this picture has good shapes and point of view of the buildings. Also would have a good shape of the negative space. It's a better pic then your score reflects in my opinion.

Looks oversharpened. Too much blue/purple tint. Also, there are a lot of elements in this to distract the eye. The sign, the traffic light, the buildings, the 'university' sign, and the 'gp' at top left all distract. What's the subject?

Looks like you cropped highly from the original image or you sharpened too much. there is definite halo-ing along that wire and street sign.

I think this would have been a better picture without the stop light.
