This was taken on the night of the 2009 induction ceremony. The ceremony is usually held in New York City, but this year it was held in Cleveland for the first time since 1997. As a result the interior of the hall was lit up more than usual.

This is exactly what I was hoping someone would post in that thread. I need to see photos like this so I know what my ultimate goal is in shooting night scenes. Thanks for sharing!

For rock an roll the font looks more classical, great image anyway.

Great light and color. Back to bump you up to 9.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/10/2009 09:05:45 PM
This is a very nice clean crisp shot. The colours area great and everything is sharp and clear.

I like the way you have placed subtle text into the dark area of the shot keeping it out of the way of the actual postcard. 9 from me.

Great night shot, love the placement of the building, thanks for not centering it!

Beautiful photo

And the winner is....this. One question, did you set out to locally replicate the winning Sydney Opera house shot from last challenge, or did it just work out that way? Of course that was advanced editing and given those rules you could have dealt with the blown whites at the top of the hall, but that shouldn't keep this from winning

Yes, yes, yes. Guessing EricV. Fantastic Job. You've got a lot of competition on this one. 10 here How timely also.

i love how the white building reflects in the water and how you managed to preserve so much detail
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/07/2009 12:39:57 AM
One of the best night city scape I have ever seen. Razor sharp focus, excellent details even at such a low resolution. One of my top score, good luck.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/06/2009 10:27:21 PM
Great cityscape! Never would have guessed it was Cleveland :-) 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/06/2009 10:19:31 PM
I can't find a single issue with this - the font is a good choice and it's properly placed, the whites are right on the edge, everything is sharp and clear and not over sharpened. A variable amount of light and color in the background and the subject is perfectly framed. Well done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/06/2009 06:53:00 PM
Nice, a classic postcard image. Again, I like these images where you can actually see the buildings against the sky. Great focus on the main subject. Good use of dead space for the text. 10

Very well done with the lighting. Love the reflefction off the water from the tall whitish building.
