    Took some pictures today when I got off work. Walked around Downtown Sacramento and some parking garages to take these pics. C&C is greatly appreciated! thanks

    Can others edit my Photos:

    I was born in Sacramento, so it has a special place in my heart :mrgreen:

    #2 I like it, the reflection looks nice, but I think the sculpture would look nice if some sun were hitting it. I think it loses some luster being in the shade.

    #3 A lot of vertical motion, I like it. I like the horizontal layers you have going on. There's a noticeable slant however, and the foreground is distracting if nothing else than because there's an incline starting on the right.

    #7 Though crooked, I like the hues and the feeling of vertigo it gives.

    #11 doesn't do anything for me. Old warehouses, construction equipment and a big mound of dirt. I think it'd be more interesting if you were on-site and grabbed detail shots (warehouse doors, windows, brick exterior, construction close-ups, etc)

    #Skyline is nice, but there seems to be a good amount of noise across the middle of the picture, where the gradient is between light and darker blue. Also, I'd suggest cropping out the building edge on the far left. What was your ISO setting for this? I'd think you could easily capture this with your ISO around 100-200 to cut down on the noise.

    Just my observations.
