What a lucky person to be living is such a beautiful place. As I said to #'s 1 & 2, this is the first time all three of the Ribbon winners I had given 10's to. Fantastic photo.

Holy Cow.......I cant believe I got a ribbon:) Of course, I have been asked for the original image, in which I sent just now, but OMG I cant believe it. Since I have become a member, I have been engulfed with creativity, ideas, good and crazy comments, friends and so on. Not only is this the best site of likeminded people, it is professional in it's checks and balances. Thanks to everyone fo appreciating my image. By the way, this was taken on my balcony at sunset. Post processing included sat, cropping, brightness, and minor shadows.

This got my attention at once! Congratulations on your YELLOW.

Beautiful how the sunset is caught as a reflection on those buildings. My city isn't that large to see something like that. Really makes an impact with the dark blue sky between. Good lighting all around.
