Thanks for all the votes and comments. :)

I thought I might get a few who would question weather this was considered pollution so I came prepared. ;-)

The challenge states: "Pollution can appear in many forms. Take a photo of pollution of some kind."

From Wikipedia - //en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pollution: Light pollution, includes light trespass, over-illumination and astronomical interference.

And an entry dedicated solely to Light Pollution - //en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Light_pollution

And a little more for your reading pleasure - //www.starrynightlights.com/lpIndex.html

I think it fits quite well. :)

I think this one is a little bit of a stretch on the theme.

The reflectionm in this shot adds an interseting aspect. The colors all pop in this photo as well.

Not a big fan of the light pollution angle but this is an excellent shot.

At first I thought it didn't fit the theme...have come back with a more informed vote...

This is gorgeous. Too bad the top of the building is cropped off. Other than that I think this is great. High marks from me.
