    I took this picture with my Canon 40D. The evening was perfect for this shot. I took the shot from Coronado Island. This was my first attempt at shooting a Cityscape. Would love some feedback! Thanks! :D

    BigDaddy, on the wow factor scale I would rate this a 9 or 10! Great shot. Wish I could do that.

    That's pretty generous of you porkphoto! I'm sure you can get a shot like that. Just go out on a nice clear night. Find a good location for your Cityscape and don't forget your camera and tripod. :thumbup:

    Very solid and crisp photo. The colors are outstanding as is your exposure- its perfect. Must note your composition- I really thought it was smart of you to put that one fairly tall and bright building in the middle or the frame with the other buildings gradually sloping down in height. Very, very impressed. Good job

    also: you will get more people to look at your photo and comment if you actually posted the picture instead of link. There is a thread on here telling you how.

    Very nice. I have a similar picture on my website. Check sig. The one on my site is less saturated than the original one I took (which looks similar to yours) I'm still not sure if I like the "cool" or "warm" look. The other one can be seen on Amazon's 50mm 1.8 MK II (Canon) lens photo samples. Its towards the end. Haha. Nice work though!

    I like your shot too! But I think I find the warmer look more appealing. Thanks for commenting! :D
