View from Harbor Island Drive across the bay

Slight crop
Stamped out a plane and its trail

Original photo found here: (#3)


Thanks for all the comments!

In retrospect, I realized I should have submitted photo #5 linked above (without the plane). It would have looked much better than this tiny submission.

I went out this past week and took another set of photos, from another angle:

Bringing the horizon line lower to the rule of third would have given more compostional impact. (7)

Great skyline shot. The clarity and DOF is nice and you've picked up the colors and reflections well. It's too bad DPC only allows a 640pixel submission because it looks like this is one of those shots that can only be done justice when seen blown up. Suggestions: A little less negative space, or slightly less sky may balance the shot more?

The skyline chops the photo in half. Maybe if you were to crop either some top or some bottom off, it wouldn't feel so centered and cut in half. Very nice reflections photograph otherwise.

I think I would have cropped a little of the water and sky out. This is a very nice picture, I really like it, but I think competition is tough - good luck!

Nice skyline, maybe crop it a bit tighter to get rid of some of the empty space.
