I like this, nice view of the city. I think it's not quite dark yet because the CN Tower and the buildings are darker than the sky. 7 - bumping up to 8

This is an interesting shot, something about the background almost makes it seem like a drawing or something...I like the use of black and white here. I like it! 10

Really wonderful use of black and white. The shapes and perspective are nice, too.

Foreground makes excellent use of contrast, but contrast appears a bit off in background. Good pic.

Needs to be more crisp.

Horizon looks a bit slanted and the sky is kind of grainy. I guess you have your reasons to make this a black and white photo, but color might have help it. Like the idea of the shot though.

Good vanatge point and works well in B & W but does seem over sharpened.

I like to compare this to the other road with car shots in the challenge. Here there is no blur of lights and no color, which is all the point in the other pics. It has the same curves composition, but reaching to the skyline. I like the balck and white and the slight gritty texture, not only looks like after dark, but feels like afterdark. 9

I love the grittyness of this picture. The angle is awesome, the cityscape in the backround is great and the star effect of some of the headlights is a really nice touch. Very Cool!

I love B&W, but I don't think it was the best option here.

It looks like the crop could be rotated a little be counter clockwise.

Very sharp; kind of an old-fashioned effect from the days when everyone used 4x5 cameras and black and white film. Did you use a star burst filter to get he flare effects on the headlights?

I like the composition. I find the picture very grainy and it seems that the horizon is off a little. Looking at it again, the buildings seem OK, so it must be a sloped street. Still it throws me off center.

Technical: fits the challenge. Exposure lighting composition focus all very good.

Personal: I'll be very interested to know how you got so much light without a long exposure!

My vote: 8

I like it...It looks like a sketch or something, the black and white does the trick...

That has to be a Toronto rush hour! Nice in B & W...

What I like most about this shot is your tonal range. The darks are nice and rich and the lights are nice and light. My attention ultimately goes to the van down right because of the street and lines and light. I would think you'd want my attention to start there, and them move up? Nice work. 8
