I just read all the comments below from the challenge and I am surprised that I did not see mine there. Oh well -- maybe a computer snafu. However, I will tell you now that I gave you a 10. I like the picture just the way it is. Very vibrant, very clear, very alive and very much an Urban Landscape. Excellent job.

Wow. Nice, nice exposure/focus on this one - raelly stunning how crisp it is, and how much of the crowd you can see without losing detail in the brighter areas. This is gorgeous.

*laugh* I am from Australia and visited NY about a month ago (GREAT place!) One of my favorite photos I took was this exact part of Times Square. Since I have been back this is the second time I've seen the same area appear in a challenge. Happy memories :) Nice shot as well by the way :)

No fair ... nothing like this in my town. Great use of color.

This is really nice. The colors are very good. The bright light in the top left corner is kind of distracting but I'm not sure there's anything you can do about it. If you tried to crop it out (along with the glow around it) you would lose the Phantom sign and part of the building. I think you did the right thing by leaving it.

Nice work.

They're commercial buildings! ; )

Good composition, but I would have cropped out the bright light at the top and included more of the street.

The image effectively conveys the intended message implied by the title.

Great color, very vibrant. Everything looks to be in good focus. As a personal preference I'd have cropped out more of the bottom so people's heads and tops of cars weren't in the shot. Very enjoyable. 7

provocative title

certainly an urban landscape, nice compositional balance with the curves - lot of city clutter 6

Lovely night colours, but I am affraid there is too much happening for this to be a top notch photo. My eyes are drawn to the Aida board, which is not the main subject. Also, I would have included the top Board with the woman' head intact. The photo has great sharpness, which is welcomed in night imagery.

Perfect shot. Not only I can get the "urban feels" but technically it's perfect ... and buildings are just there. One of the best shot of the last weeks.

Nice photo! Shame about the light (top left) I find it pulls my eyes towards it.

Nice shot and good exposure,. I can't help thinking that it might be nice if the bottom of the shot was at street level, rather then cutting people off below their necks...

This photo captures the spirit of the "Great White Way," the bright lights against the dark night.
