Yes, the arch of water really bugs me, too. But this was the best shot. Actually, the 2nd best. The best shot was ruined by the two security guards that were monitoring me. They got smack in the middle of the photo!

I like this very much. the neon lights really draw me in. I enjoy how the height of the fountain fills in the negative space at the top right. great job!

Those lights getting in the way of the sign are quite a pain. I love the long-ish exposure here to smooth the water. Good shot and interesting work. 8

Nice colors but the fountain and building are both slanting inwards.

Wow, nice.

Lovely soft fountain - although I think it clashes a bit with the hrsh neon lighting.

There are a lot of neat things here. Maybe too many. There seems to be nothing legitimately level here. Is this a fisheye lens trick or am i just seeing things? The fountain would've been the focus of this photo if I were submitting it. Its gorgeous. Great exposure on it.

Wow, the arches of water are really cool. You should have definetely cropped out the water on the right (too cliche) and focused soley on the water arches and the neon part of the building.... that would have been HOT.

Beautiful exposure of the lights and water - well done! I'm not sure I really like the tilt in the water fountain though - is this the result of using a wide angle lens?

Wonderful shot with good control of exposure and wonderful neon colors. The photo seems to tilr some but overall a very nice shot.
