5.0? I liked it and gave it an 8, i'm surprised to find it way down here!

I guess others didn't see the simplicity of "city life"

I'm in shock. I really expected this to place much better (and can't believe some others finished ahead of this). To each his own, I guess, but I know what I like!

My only 10 in the challenge... I declare you the winner! :) This is just beautiful. I'll be interested to see what kind of lighting/processing you used. The colors from the neon are just beautiful. Congratulations on a great shot!! I hope you ribbon.

Nice composition. I like the apartment buildings in the background to give a sense of place. Possibly a little less exposure to make the non-neon elements a bit more shadowy would be perfect.

I love the warm feeling of this shot, and the crispness is right on. Too bad all the signs were'nt as crisp and neat looking as the "Italian Dinners" sign. I'm not sure how much this would help, but I think perhaps cutting out the apartment building to the right and making the restaurant the main composition would help .. my focus is being drawn to the bright apartment building when I should be more drawn to the restaurant. Anyway, good work, you'll place high with this one.

excellent work! great composition. a well-captured scene. i'lm sure it wansn't in your control, but the brightly-lit building beind the neon sign seems to clutter the scene. I also would have cropped more off the left side.

The mood and nostalgic feel are retained beautifully. The detail is great. There are some great color contrasts, aslo.

Very nice! I like this one the best so far (and I've already voted on most of them). Good job at capturing more than just a sign -- you've also captured a mood.
