Your so tiny, maybe some 60 lbs sand bags in you back pack will keep you from falling over in high winds.

I liked the shot, but, the brightness did take away from the challenge.

Keep going sucker.

it's cool that the stars are just starting to show through. i'd like to see another angle, especially one where the street signs weren't so prominent as i don't see them as strengthening any kind of message

Cool shot. The exposure is so long, though, that its really hard to tell it is night. The stars only serve to confuse. I think a bit darker exposure would work better for me.

Could you have slowed the exposure down?The white "windmills" on a dark sky would have really set this off.

I would say this looks like a day shot (its so good) but I can see stars too. Amazing capture.

The exposure may have been too long, it seems like daytime.

Phenomenal! Caught my eye already, as I was perusing the thumbs!
I like the choice you made to turn night into day (levels / colors / saturation I presume)

Good luck in the challenge!

While the stars tell me this is a night shot, it seems too bright to convey "night" to me. Great shot though!

Must have had the shutter open for like 10 minutes hahahaha

Wow this is really slow/long shutter, which is evident of the stars above and ultra-fast tubines. What if it were just a bit darker overall at slightly fast shutter? Good composition, though the details are a little blurred. Good potential.

Great sky, great lighting, and great composition. If I could only have as much insight... Great image!

Is this a night picture? I can see some stars in the sky but it seems that it could be early in the evening, does not look like a night shoot. Any way I like it..

Wow. I see the stars but it sure is bright out.

It's cool you got the stars to show up. I think the signs will take away from your final score. But I still like it - 8
