Morning shot, sun was about to come over the tops of these buildings, as thick fog was rolling in. Created soft effect which I am sure I will get flack on, but I want to take the 'hard edge off' the city feel, I think the mist of plane, and fog did make it feel soft.

Congratulations. I thought this would place MUCH higher. I love the haze, the plane, the composition--everything.

Had this pegged for a ribbon winner! Still 25th place!

did you try this in bw? I think it would look cool given the amount of similar tones! love the composition, great city. :)

I like the composition quite a bit here. Capturing the plane adds additional interest. I know from your title that this was a hazy day, but I think this shot would benefit from trying to boost the tones to gives some darker blacks. It doesn't detract that much though - this isa very eye catching shot.

Beautiful. Can't make my mind up if the plane spoils it a touch, or enhances it a tad. The haze is awesome, and the composition perfect. A somewhat devalued 10 because I've given so many!

Not enough contrast in this shot to make it stand out. Just too flat for me.

I like this shot very much. It looks as though the buildings in the background are actually a ship afloat on the water, like a big aircraft carrier. Nice composition between the taller buildings and the seaplane. I sense a slightly hazy evening atmosphere that you see a lot at the waters edge.

It's a great shot, I just wish there was some more color in it. Maybe crop a bit off the bottom, but otherwise a well composed shot.

Oooh action shot. Haze doesn't work for me, sky a little bland but composition and content are good.

Good composition and action. You were able to take a negative (haze) and turn it into a vital element in your capture of the scene. The water spray helps bring it all together. 10

I would like to see this shot without the haze as well, but there is something about it that really appeals to me. 10

Good misty look to the image already. The sea plane taking off adds a nice touch.

Nice capture of action with the plane. Would have been nice with a little better atmospheric conditions IMHO. 6

I really like this shot. Great composition. The plane, for me, adds so mush more to the image. Great shot.

This is a little bit dark and a little bit noisy, but composed well. The sea plane in action, and great looking buildings made for a nice shot. Beautiful area.
