Thats down the street that I live, and thats the city below it (Payson, Spring Lake, Springville, And provo is waay off into the distance there...)
Anyways, i really like this one, and it was dang hard to take, set on timer, had to run down the street under the light, hold still for 8 seconds, run back up the hill, review the photo, and repeat.

Oh WOW.

This is amazing. I love how the little pinpricks of light are drowning in black, and there isn't even a hint of texture or midtone in the sea darkness. It makes the little lights seem all the more lost and lonely, giving this a desperately sad atmosphere. (I don't know if any of that makes any sense... :D) but this is a powerful image. Well done.

Lovely moody shot with great perspective again. If you want to save yourself a lot of hassle, get the Canon remote timer switch...it's not cheap (about 120 bucks) but it's amazingly useful because you can set it to fire every X seconds (great for timelapse and self portrait). It also does loads of other stuff like >30s bulb exposures but it's still a lot of money for what it is. I couldn't live without mine now though...

Nice, and thanks for including the EXIF data. Interesting that you thought to use sharpen edges -- or maybe I'm just out of the loop. Anyway, I may have to experiment with it. Great shot though.

this feels like part of an interesting story...there is a sense of vulnerability, standing in the light surrounded by darkness, seeking solace...
lovely low key processing...

I can tell that you have greatly enjoyed this SP side challenge, and your photos have gotten a lot of well deserved praise. By putting the images into a theme, you have connected them nicely with our human feelings and moods. Great job so far, and it will continue to get better as you gain experience. You already have the creativity. In this image, by transposing yourself and the first light on the backdrop of the city with all it's lights and people, you make the viewer think about what you are saying, even before reading the title. The line of lights going down the hill are a great leading line creating the unity with the background city.
