I immediately recognized this as Mead Library in Sheboygan. I am from Oostburg, and it is one of my favorite places in Sheboygan. Thanks for the great photo!

I like the "cleaness" of this very urban composition. Nicely done!

Although there are a lot of different elements in this shot, it is so well composed that it does not appear busy. Great job on the processing too.

I like everything about this image except for the white light big star. It glares in my eyes while I'm trying to examine detail. Love your subject. Great job on the silk water effect.

The falls and clock look great & nice balance of shapes, but the burned out security light and over-bright yellow lights spoil the effect. Nice try!

nice, it made me go "ooooohh". I don't like the clock tower though.... consider knocking it down ;-) thats personal taste though this is an 8 in my voting scheme (though it could be a tad sharper may I be so bold as to suggest).

I love long exposure... And that fountain is icing on the cake!

Other than the bright street light this is a really nice shot.

I shall be rating this challenge by the following criteria:

1 - Not HDR in my opinion

3 - HDR is way over-done, in my opinion

5 - A reasonable use of HDR, but not a very engaging photo, in my opinion

7 - A reasonable use of HDR, and an engaging photo, in my opinion

10 - A fantastic use of HDR, and an out of this world photo, in my opinion

so cool, need a library like this where i live! 8!

I like the contrast of the yellow lights with the blue sky and water. Of course, the exposure method does nice stuff for the flowing water. The stereotypical "HDR look" is visible, but restrained.

That looks very cool! They should definitely use this in their promotional brochures!
