    I had my tripod in the trunk of my car and decided to spend some time taking photos at 430am after work. C&C is always welcome, I'm always looking to improve.

    1. That puff of whatever is visually irritating IMO, thoughts?

    I like 3 but think it needs a little more contrast to make that bridge really pop out from the background.

    1. I like it. The "puff" adds another element to the photo, that does not necessarily follow traditional appeal.
    2. My favorite of the bunch. Very crisp and I like the cropping down to a banner.
    3 and 4. I prefer the black and white version. It just appeals to my eyes more.
    5. I would have rather seen a landscape shot of this. There is too much "nothing" at the top, and you are right about needing a little rotation.

    I like the color version, but it needs to be white balanced I think.

    Hello,

    I am about to begin work on a similar project for a client of mine. From what I can tell there will be significant overlap in terms of features.

    That "puff" is lens glare.

    I wanna say Detroit.
    At least there is a bridge very similar there, near the Visitors Welcome and Information Center, in Mexican Town.

    [EDIT] after searching, it's not, but probably the same designer.

    My favorite is #3 and I would NOT change the contrast. The tones are gorgeous.

    The colour version (either one) doesn't do anything for me.

    #2 I would have cropped some of the left and added to the right. And of course, I would not have cut off the top of the bridge/put it so near the edge of the image.
