You captured the light of dusk very well- the deepenning blue of the sky and the golden glow of the fountain lights work well together. I would have cropped out the piece of building to the left

I've seen this postcard! (kidding!) Very good shot. This is exactly what I would expect to see. Very well shot. The soft blur of the water is wonderfully satin. The skyline is very nice. (Small nit about alignment of the top of the fountain and the building background, but really!) 10 Rob the Swash

I think the crop is crowding the tall building just a little. Great shot at dusk. REally nice work.

Flawless. Your photo is not interrupted by anything extraneous. This could be the winner.

This is a great photo; unfortunately it doesn't depict the title of the postcard. This is a windy city with extremely still and smooth-looking water fountains.

Great job. Maybe a little tight on the crop, a little more sky above the tower would help. Still a great shot. 9

Wow... beautifully done! Absolutely stunning my number 1, only 10 for the challenge! Congrats... how long was your exposure? Gotta love Chicago <GRIN> If I had to change anything it would be the color of your border... just absolutely gorgeous.

Where is this city? It looks very modern. This is a wonderful capture, the lighting is amazing. Everything seems to be in exactly the right place, and yep, I would buy this postcard....

i don't really like the border at all...i think it really takes away from the composition. the photo itself is good. the long exposure has a nice effect on the fountain and the fountain is a good contrast between the fore and background. also shooting the photo in order to more recognizable buildings in the background would help as well. i can see the hancock tower peaking out back there but it wouldn't be recognizable to anyone outside of the chicago area. so overall the photo is really good...the border just cheapens it in my opinion. also there is no mention of chicago, so anyone who doesn't know the pet name of the city would be a little confused

Nice lighting and timing for shooting the frame. I think the choice of font and the size of font could have been better. Also SanSerif fonts work better with old architecture.
Also shutter speed choice is appropriate all the fountains to give an verall soft effect.

Very nice photo of the fountains, appears to have been taken at dusk.

Great image! I love the twilight shot, the colors are so vibrant, and hte lighting is awesome. The only thing I don't care for is the text. It doesn't seem to fit so well. However it's not distracting enough to take away points. Well done!
