Sick!!!! Love all your lighting shots. My brother is a weather fanatic and loves to chase storms. I had to forward your profile to him. You gotta love the Colorado thunderstorms!

This is really super. I'm glad you didn't process the shizzle out of it. Keepin it real. Cheers!

The storm looks powerful enough to cause urban renewal. You really captured the power of the storm and the luminescence of mother nature bearing down on the urban landscape.

Nice capture, especially the clouds! I don't know how "urban" this is, but I like it nonetheless.

08/20/2007 04:24:43 PM
This is an amazing shot but to bad the not really much city in it. Maybe for another theme
08/20/2007 02:48:57 PM
Powerful. I'd call it "The Finger of God." Cool shot.

Thats a powerful image.. I especially like how you've captured the storm and roughness below the clouds, and the soft peacefull-ness above them.

Why did you have to waste such an amazing photo on the wrong challenge? Don't even bother with the competition; show this off wherever you can!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/19/2007 02:57:15 PM
holy cow! its like a war below the clouds and a peacful night sky above! this is amazing! ten!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/19/2007 12:00:33 PM
focus of shot is not urban-this is a weather related photograph
08/19/2007 03:16:44 AM
holy shit.. this isn't that urban but it gets a 10 anyways. If you don't win i'll just give up on people all together.

  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/16/2007 11:01:08 PM
Wow! This is a stretch for urban landscapes, but it's such a sweet shot I'll give it a 9 anyway.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/16/2007 07:43:05 PM
WOW, AWESOME photograph! congratulations on your ribbon, i'm sure you'll get one! 10 from me!

Definitely unique and quite effective. It'd be nice to see more of the city lights but I'm afraid nature's light show has taken center stage here. I like the detail that's evident in the clouds and the rich blue at the top of the frame. Really well composed with the lightning strikes getting the "sweet spots" in the shot.

08/16/2007 03:36:36 PM
Wow/ thats amazing

I love the layers in this shot, the clouds, the lightnig and the sky above the clouds are awesome.

08/16/2007 11:42:11 AM
Wow...really amazing 9

Wow that's a cool shot!!! Amazing!

All this needs is a good crop to be a 9/10. There's too much dark up top.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/16/2007 10:31:43 AM
stunning - dramatic colors! Nice out of the box thinking - I hope people dont' criticize it too much for not being urban. Without the city, you wouldn't have that fiery yellow tone in the middle
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Not marking it down for this, but it seems like it would fit better in the Rural Landscape challenge. I think it's an marvelous capture of a very stormy sky. Love the layers of the starry blue, the roiling clouds, the natural and artificial light, and the silhouette of the earth.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/15/2007 01:45:54 PM
There isn't much "urban" in here; maybe this would have ben a better shot for rural landscapes. It's a great shot though, just misplaced.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/15/2007 10:45:06 AM
Getting a bit hyper-real, the upper clouds pull too much attention away from the lightning light show below.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/15/2007 10:04:51 AM
Great shot! Nice capture of the lightening. The golden city lights are great as well.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/15/2007 08:20:33 AM
Oh my goodness, that's massive! should be a contender...good luck
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/15/2007 06:52:40 AM
I wouldn't describe this as a particularly urban landscape but it's a stunning picture.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/15/2007 12:46:05 AM
great shot. but I think you are shoe horning it into the challenge. the primary focus of this shot are the clouds and lightning/rain, not the city lights. would have been a 9 if it met the challenge. instead it is now a 4
08/15/2007 12:23:40 AM
Great picture. But focus doesn't feel like it is anything urban
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/15/2007 12:11:30 AM
Wow - amazing capture - I especially love the fact that you included the clear sky above the storm clouds. Great job!
