Very interesting composition on this. I love the tantalizingly small blip of sky you reserve for the upper left-hand corner.

Very nice! Any idea where we can find a large resolution of this?

Greetings from the Critique Club

I love this approach to the challenge. The composition is daring and effective. It defies the "rule" of composition that says the focal point shouldn't be too close to the edge, and it works. The many diagonal lines make this very dynamic and exciting. I especially like the way you've used the freeway at the far left edge as an anchor.

The overall darkness and warm colors work with the composition to create a great mood. And the varied shapes and forms of the buildings meld together to create a nice texture, which further enhances this mood. Everything just works together perfectly here.

This isn't a photo that everyone will enjoy or appreciate. But I certainly do! Great job.

Love the view! Nice use of the sun reflecting on the streets to make the lines stand out.

Interesting piece of work. I don't know if this was intentional, but since the sun is in the corner, and the roads lead diagonally from it, the roads look like they could be rays to the sun. Very nice concept!

Excellent interpretation ... lovely tones ... and the glare at the end just about adds that light yet essential touch. 9

FINALLY a good use for tilt. Ordinarily I am rather anti-tilt but this is a rare exception. Nicely done. 8
