New York City, as seen from across the East River in Long Island City, NY. I happened to be at a wedding there, and I took some night shots of the cityscape. Although not a landscape in the traditional sense, I decided I'd give this photo a try in the challenge.

I too submitted an urban scene, and though I like the picture, its score is poor... granted, the literal definition of a landscape involves NATURE not MAN-MADE subjects - so you and I both turned the challenge description on its head. good perhaps from a conceptual standpoint, if not a scoring standpoint! good luck in the rankings - perhaps yours is doing better than mine. WRT the photo itself, I think a bit of sharpening to enhance the clarity of all the windows would have made this photo pop a lot more and generally improve its impact.
