Beautiful shot! I love the B&W much beta than the color!

I like looking at pictures where I know the exact spot it's taken from :)

Ernst & Young is to the left of this isn't it?

Great shot but I'm going to give a non-pro opinion. I liked the tallest building leaning slightly. By straightening it, you have now made it seem like the entire picture is leaning to the left. I would, personally, prefer one building to lean slightly while having 95% of the picture straight.

Just my opinion though

Always love a nice night cityscape shot! It definitely looks print-worthy to me!

Thought I'd update this thread. We finally decided to get photo framed. It is a 13x19 print with a black wooden frame.

I like it. As for the color version, some of the best "night shots" I've seen were taken before it's totally dark while there's still some light left in the sky. You don't need much, but you need some. And the deep blue would accent your wife's pillows. ;)

Thanks for all the compliments everyone.

photagraph: luckily my wife is a bit of a neat freak and she does ok at the decorating too ;)

photosguy: I agree. I'm headed back down there again this 4th of July and plan on taking a few more in the "blue hour".

This looks pretty cool to me! While it seems like your horizon is straight, the tallest building leans slightly and it slightly bothers me. Maybe try rotating the photo, like, 2 degrees?

I like the conversion. Nice sky, too!

It is indeed THE tallest building outside of New York and Chicago. Ninth tallest building in the USA. It's the Bank of America Building, formally known as the Nations Bank Building.


Thank you. bw!

Great shot. I like your last edit. The only thing that really bothers me is that the top of the tallest building seems overexposed.
