Very surprised this one got 5th... I thought I would be a ribbon no problem... Lets just say you got a ribbon in my eyes!!! I came back to this shot expecting to find why it got 5th but I still can't figure it out... I see NO flaws with it! Great job and I hope you can post some more like this... Absolutely wonderful!

Well I thought the other one was Hotpasta's. Now I'm not 100% sure.

Much cooler city than the other one!

I love the detail in the buildings, and the smear to light allover the water. Great picture.

It is hard to say what makes one of the city-scapes stand out from the others. This is my favorite so far. 6

This is by far my favorite cityscape of the challenge. The blue tint is nice but not overwhelming. I like how the buildings completely fill the horizon.

looks very cool. But not very original for this challenge
11/12/2008 10:01:37 AM

The city looks like it's taking off like a rocket. I love the colors here, nice contrast too.

reminds me of 21.gif hotpasta's style of toning. I may have tried a tighter crop losing the building on the far right. I think this would have look interesting with each building escalating higher then the next. The light is very well balanced, but I do not think the border adds much to the presentation.

Love the water reflections. It looks like you may have been trying to cover up a tiny bit of motion blur with a sharpening filter. Unfortunately I think you may have had too much blur to cover. It's a damn shame too, because that water is gorgeous.
