    Hey the mini challenges were not to be included. No deduction though because the other choices are spot on. Beautiful!

    This looks a bit too enhanced but I like it just the same.

    Very attractive composition. I wish there was more detail/sharpness. The blotches in the sky make me suspect a dirty window is the culprit but it could also be the 13s shutter linked with the vibrations in a tall building. I was thinking the Drake but it seems a bit too close and not high enough :-)
Love the lights and warm colours against the blue dawn.

    i agree on the choice of themes. i would have cropped at the top to dissect the mauve section and the bottom with a line under the blue highlight . this would have made a "pano" with lights going into the sea

    I expect there was a haze over the city, which gives a rather soft look to it. The colours are stunning, almost jewel-like. I feel that the blue is overwhelming the gold tones of the city - perhaps a bit of a crop would change the dynamic.

    Perfect time of day for the image. The composition could be better -- the sky creates the mood, but the subject is the city which is squeezed into the lower left quadrant and with nothing in the other three quarters of the image, so it feels unbalanced. Among my favs.

    Nice evening shot that retains some interest, but needs a more dramatic contrast to bring out the resolution. It looks a bit soft and perhaps not in the sharpest of focus -- therefore, less impactful

    Lovely colours in this inviting composition. It has a Yin Yan quality to it. How on earth did to get that angle?
