    Not really looking for any critique but you can say what you want if you feel inclined to do so.

    NICE! I really love the wet pavement in the first one. Nice!!!
    Really love your use of the colors of the lights too!
    Houston is an amazing city and these are great shots. Usually you see the daytime stuff and the typical. NICE portrayal of the amazing parts that often get overlooked!

    To me Houston doesnt relly come to life until after sunset. Also the first shot has a water feature that you are seeing in the middle. Same spot as #4 but I am on the other end.

    Killing colors...... Everyone would be compelled to say at least one word of appreciation, even if you were not particular about gathering the same :D

    Disk, I like them!

    1 and 3 though, I don't know if it soft or underexposed. There's just some lack of detail and I think it's from either one. I enjoyed these.:thumbup:

    btw the penzoil building is my favorite one.

    Thanks. I get lots of compliments on my use of color. I find that night shots take to the over saturation nicely.

    That was from a friends s**** balcony on the 25th floor. He has a corner condo with balconies facing north and west. Great views from there.

    1 and 3 are some of my older works. 1 is a bit soft because it didnt use a tripod. I just sat the camera on the ground. 3 was sort of an experimental hdr. I have lots of hdr pics from that same spot from when I was still attending classes.
