My girlfriend took this picture of the NY skyline (while I was driving) when the clouds were covering most of the buildings. I am trying to teach her to use a DSLR. In person, the skyline looked very cool with the sun behind them (unfortunately this didn't come across very well in the pictures).

C&C welcome, B&W or color?

I really like this shot except for the extenisve graffiti. The beauty of the shot is in the muted, busy feeling of the city and then there is this big bold graffiti work on the side of the building. It detracts from the shot. Maybe tone it down?

But that's just one opinion.

What about something like this? Another section of the same scene...I realize I'm losing detail and sharpness and the forum conversion doesn't help.

I re-edited and removed the MOMA, I guess it helps. Thanks for the comments.
