Personally, I'm not real keen on the purple hue or the lens flair.

Waaay too saturated, especially the blues

Great landscape/seascape/sunset shot, but a single landmard doesn't stand out to me.

Like the sunset, like the valley, like the exposure - not crazy about the frame.

You've made a good job of a difficult exposure.

The sunrise(set?) is ok but the valley looks bleak. Not because of anything you did, it just looks...industrial and not pretty.

For some reason, I just keep coming back wanting to gaze at this. It is actually a fairly ordinary scene we might see, but maybe because you managed to capture it HOW I see this sometimes, it just stirs something in me. Very captivating. I love the haze and distant viewing.

Your picture is very beautiful and it brings out the beauty of mother nature. I love the colors and the way the picture fits together.

Nice sky and nice colors. Altho the parking lot doesnt do it for me.

Beautiful sky! I'm not crazy about the lens flare and am not sure how well this fits the challenge theme, as this is more of a landscape than a landmark. A beautiful photo nonetheless.

Damn. I didn't realize there were any Binghamtonian's on DPC. Not sure if I'd call this a Binghamton landmark, but it's a nice picture. Didn't realize the Mall could look that nice :)
