'Completely' inspired by C.K. Kan's prize winning photograph. I'm sure Kan used a 10mm lens as opposed to my unsuitable 17mm. I had all sorts of problems with this shot, especially the down lights from the curved structure. Almost directly above the camera were more down lights which played havoc with my longer exposures. I don't mind the photo but unfortunately my buildings are too blue. Bring on March the 11th and my Sigma 10mm!!!

A fantastic cityscape, I really like it. I Have to admit I am having a hard time deciding if this is a creative interpretation and honest effort at the topic, or just an easy way of throwing in a great shot you did last week.

Excellent. Fills the frame with interest, lighting is jus about spot on, not too dark, not too light. You can see the buildings internal lights and the swirling architecture leads you in, as if you need it! Technically brilliant artistically very good.

great shot, just wish I knew the skyline and that architectural feature to narrow it down to a city. 8

The lighting and colors appeal to me and the title just tops it off. Nice shot.

Woah! Very creative! I love the emphasis on the line of lights, and also the lighted buildings. Love it!

This is such a fun shot. I don't think that it feel very self-portraity (yes, that is now a word) but with the title I think it just might do okay. Really stellar, the clouds work so well in this. Great composition.
