Hey, WAY TO GO, Don!!! What a very cool concept. I don't know why, but no matter what I've tried, I've never been able to get that beautiful Tower of the Americas to score big. This cool picture just confirms it: it's a conspiracy :)

Very nice! Nice composition, it gives me this 50's movie posters for a sci fi flick

Very nice. Reminds me of a rare form of Architecture based on cactus, for a future when we need to live off-surface, or for dry climates. Quite evocative. Good luck with this image!

Nice idea, and well done. Although I'm not sure about the stuff at the bottom of the pic.

I think this photo looks great. I like the colors and the detail in the sky. I think if you had done some lighting effects on the towers so they matched the setting more the photo would be amazing.

This is a fun image, although it just doesn't seem photographic enough. The buildings seem a bit flat and the shapes of them inconsistent which makes it almost cartoony.

Traditional rules of composition still apply...

I love the idea here. That's brilliant thinking. I think you could work on it and make it better. Maybe add some more contrast to the cactus towers and add some more detail. Not sure what those things in the sky are. But I think it would be cool if you added some manta rays :)
