Fort Worth Texas. Spotted this view on one of my bike rides. Returned on the way home from work one day with my SLR in hand. I may have gotten some better light if I had shot this a couple of hours later in the evening, but I'm still pretty pleased with it. I got some other shots during this outing that I liked even more, but they did not quite fit the subject of city landscape.

Pre-challenge notes:
If this were advanced rules, I would have cloned out the sign that is sticking up on the bridge. Cropping the image to keep it out would have killed the composition I liked, so it had to stay. If there were no editing rules, I would have also hidden the construction project behind some more trees. I don't think I quite managed to achieve the "wow factor" that scores highly here, but I still think it should do reasonably well.

Post challenge notes:
Did about as expected with this one.

This would have made a nice extended-exposure night shot.

the thing above the bridge is very distracting...

Nice composition and balance. The greenery makes the challenge, blue pops (polarizer?). Like the new/old buildings. Good luck!
