This one was yours, David???? WOW!!!! What an amazing shot for a Texan :) I love this one! I am so surprised that it didn't score way up there in the 6's!

Thank you all for the comments!

I struggled on this challenge between two photos. The one I didn't submit was a different angle of the Boston Back Bay area (from a different bridge):

a little noisy but over nice shot, its nice to have the light on the water. gives it a difinition and makes it more than a void.

Nice city view but not much to raise it above the others.

Nicely done, beautiful cityscape, love the dark blackness to the water with the colorful reflections of the red, green and yellows. Would have loved to seen more stars, but not much you could do about that. Overall well done and good luck
