Just a real quick snapshot I took on our way to the MGM Grand after visiting the Coke Store where I need to mention I had the best bottle of Coca-Cola ever.

Because of the snapshot-esque feeling I don't think that the photo has that "wow factor" for it to do well in this challenge.

In terms of post processing I did a slight adjustment to the hue of the sky to bring out the blues a bit more to make it pop out.

A little over done with the blue saturation in the sky, but otherwise I love the color of the buildings. I think you did a great job popping the buildings and adding interest to an otherwise normal NYC skyline.

I also wanted to add the fun irony of you just leaving a Coke store and snapping a photo with the Pepsi logo on the side. LOL.

Nice job.

Greetings from the Critique Club!

So this is a miniature version of NYC located in the middle of the American desert, eh? Very cool! The colours are almost cartoony, which seems to go well with the illusion here. Looks a bit unreal, the way all those Manhattan-skyline buildings are jammed in so close together. It is a little 'touristy snapshot', but pretty sweet score for a snap! The light is nice and helps give depth to the buildings; the composition is straightforward, a little dull, but the nature of your subject and pp seem to have rescued it somewhat. Wish the top of the Chrysler(?) building was in the shot too, but that's getting nitpicky.

Overall a very decent effort, glad it did so well for you. Keep shooting and entering!

Feel free to PM me,

Susan

I like the composition you chose. Much more interesting than the standard new York skyline.

Very vibrant colors. Love the PP. My sister actually just moved to NY city. I hope she likes it there... I couldn't live somewhere like that, but I'm more laid back.
Great shot, excellent PP. Nicely done!

Great color and clarity , just wish the top of the tall building wasn't cut off . although I'm sure it was hard enough to get all of what you have here .I really like it !

Ahh, Vegas. What a fantastically opulent city. Can't wait to go back there and get some more images like this myself.

NY as it appears in Las Vegas, yes?
