That would make a great ad for the Skyshow. Great colors, looks very festive.

Nice night shot of Charlotte. Was the foreground included just to meet the challenge? Would have looked a lot better cropped just below the "skyline" buildings.

nice photo.....I lived in Charlotte for 20 years.....Charlotte has really grown and changed....you captured the excitement of the place really nice....I like the lighting of the people down below, and the buildings up top.

Great Shot. The clear contrast of the people with the clearness of the buildings behind, realy add to this photo. Great Job.

I know its hard with longer shutter speeds, but the buildings look a bit out of focus.

I have a feeling this will not do well although it is an advertisment. I gove you a Home town 9 though...

Seems more like a cityscape shot than an ad for the event. Beautiful night shot though.

There is a lot going on in this photo. I assume you are advertising the event on the bottom of the photo? There is great detail, and while the photo might draw someone to come to the city based upon the backdrop, the event itself seems like the secondary subject of this photo. I would give this a 7.

Great job! You can cut off the bottom half and have a nice cityscape as well. (10)
