Nicely done, shaggy! I was living in Cambridge while they were building this bridge, and it was fascinating to watch it go up. Come on down and check out the Cape some day :-)

Yeah, it was a freezing night, but we're used to it up here. For this shot, we went down memorial drive almost all the way to the big dig area. Along the river, they are currently constructing a new park on the Cambridge side. We ended up hopping a few fences and walked around through the unopened park until we found the perfect spot. The same night, were also took a lot of shots at the waterfront, some of which were amazing, but I liked the sky in this one more.

My 3rd challenge! I'm VERY happy with a top 10. I biked around Boston with my buddy for 2 nights trying to get the best night shots. These were the storm clouds that eventually brought 10 days of rain to Boston.

Thanks a lot to everyone who commented. I have learned so much over the last 2 months, and I especially appreciate the comments from the amazing photographers to whom I look up to. I hope to get to know some of the great people here, and look forward to learning much more!

I like the motion in the clouds.

Awesome picture. I like how the clouds moved. It gives the sky a sense of motion behind the static buildings in the foreground.

Nice picture but I think there is a bit too much sky in it... would have liked a tighter crop. But what do I know... Still like it, 8.

Nice color. I'm not sure you were'nt better served by leaving out the right side and focusing on the bridge. - 6

Fantastic image. In a way, I wish I could see more of the reflection of the water than the skies. But great shot nonetheless (8)
