Sunshine in the morning. It's peaceful and calm... I can imagine that person drinking in the warmth and feeling as if they could take the whole of the city on. What a rush.

I expected there would be those who didn't see it that way. Most, even. That's okay. To me it's zen... and it's focused.

Thanks for the nice comments and bling!

Nice textures in the buildings and fence. A complex cityscape simplified to a feeling. Very nice.

Meditation in action. Embracing and interacting with the energy around him, or her.

Hard lines and shapes transformed into soft, smeared charcoal. Chaos goes quiet, if only for a moment. That's some powerful zen. Love it.

Like the bendy buildings.

this strikes me as the polar opposite of zen. frenetic, urban, non-soothing. abstract to the point of challenging my imagination as opposed to relaxing me. don't get me wrong - i love the image - but personally feel that it doesn't come close to meeting the challenge.
