Sunset over Mt. Tamalpais and Marin County from the Oakland Hills. The bright speck is the planet Venus. Perhaps not all that "creative" but I was up against the (soon to be delayed) deadline.

Darn, I thought this (almost literally) last-minute snapshot was going to top 6.

Lovely sky, but there's not enough impact in the rest of the picture.

Nice concept - it expresses the challenge subject well. Perhaps a location that didn't have the lights in the foreground would be better. Also,getting some more exposure into the foreground might make it pop as a transitional subject more - really highlight that change from light to dark.
