Congrats on the top 10, LOL! We almost had similar entries...AGAIN :-) But I couldn't get my butt in gear. Next time you're in LA, please give us a heads up.

I would crop some of the sky off. A very nice image even with it.

I like the negative space on this and how the light pollution gives way to the dark sky and fades as it moves into the background.

Bet Mr. Griffith never thought his namesake observatory would be battling so many lights one day! This is a gorgeous view.

I see all the basics of a good picture here though it might need a slightly different composition to stand out as one.
A tighter crop might help make the subject appear more as a jewel of the city. Right now, it's kind of lost, almost a distraction from the skyline. Also, the division of the picture into 2 equal halves - an empty top half and a busy bottom half doesn't make it feel balanced.

Lovely. I like the way the distant lights merge into haze - as though the city has no limits.

Lovely shot. Really does look like Jewels in the night.

Magnificent - Everything is clear and focused, the colors are bright without being too saturated - I can't imagine what the evening sounded like from this vantage point.

Great shot, I feel like the sky is lacking detail though, but overall nice.
