Challenge: Best of 2009 (Advanced Editing VII*)
Camera: Nikon D300
Lens: Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR II
Location: New York City
Date: Nov 11, 2009
Date Uploaded: Jan 19, 2010

Taken one foggy midtown night before Thanksgiving.

So many encouraging comments as well as intelligent criticism (yes, the lens distortion bothered me as well). I don't mind ending up in the 200's considering some of the great company I'm in.

lol distortion? man i don't see it. Shows you what I know. What I really liked about this was the fog. I just love how it looks like a big monster, ready to take over the building. Too bad there weren't some Macy's Day Parade balloons escaping at this moment hehe. Great shot!

Interesting, I like the fog / smoke on the left hand side contrasted with the sharp details of the building on the right. When I looked at the shot I didn't instantly see the fog, but when it came to my attention it was a nice surprise.

This is really cool. This is a different idea than I generally see here. Nice job.

Yo_Spiff is this you? Dunno why I think that but I know I have seen something similar this year. Whoever it is I really like this. The dark building, the mist & the almost diagonal patch of brightness on the paler building. Really interestingly different shot

Very strong moody pic to have in an urban setting. Almost have the Mountains atmosphere to it with the mist (maybe smoke?) but then we have buildings. Weirdest pic ive seen and feelings it evokes. Would have been nice to have the lights more in the pic than the edges

Not sure I like the vertical subject in a horizontal frame, but the mist adds some nice atmosphere.

Very creative, elegant image.
The only little issue imo is the very visible lens distorsion.
