    Bill, I was sure the streaks were intentional but they just didn't do it for me. I wondered about star streaks and again it just didn't matter. Of course, coming from 38th position, this looks pretty good! ;-)

    Thanks 'neat', but I have to bow to the audience. Either they like it, or they don't. That's the game.

    WOW, so surprised this is down here, such nit pickers around here, lol!!

I thought the light streaks is what made this photo, it actually reminded me of that famous image at Grand central station in NYC, where the light is streaming through the atrium it's marvellous, I even made a special trip there when we were in NYC in May just to see if I could take a pic like that, but in vain did I try.

    A nice city scene. The light glare adds some flare (pun intended). The overall lighting and colors are attractive.

    I have to say, what a great capture, especially the light rays, right up there as the better ones.

    You've really captured a beautiful photo of San Francisco at night - the exposure is just perfect, and the flares really add to vibrance.

    Forkcandles, Jade, sorry you did not care for the flares. Actually, those were intentional. I thought they made the shot. Maybe not.

    the flares spoil the picture ... had you had the lens against the window this might have helped

    It is a matter of personal preference but I don't like the light streaks and sense without them the image becomes more ordinary.
