    A bit strong on the left side color. Otherwise, a fine result. In my favs.

    really like the effect of the vert pan of the bldgs, very nice. Normally I do not like the USM but in this case I think it works. I do think image weighted too heavy on left; need a little negative space or light color bldg on left to better balance the composition.

    The vertical movement gives a very good impressionistic image of the skyscrapers. High in my favs.

    I like this one a lot - definitely recognizable as a group of skyscrapers, with that wonderful lighting and softened image

    I like the contrast between the vibrant orange and grayish buildings. One of my top pick.

    I so like this - great orange vertical lines and love the hint of a sunset on the horizon.

    Great capture! Love the bold orange and the hint of the forms of the buildings you been able to attain with the blur effect. Very high in my placement.

    Somehow you've just stayed on this side of the line between abstract and realism but it is recognizable and on the realism side. Very much Art Deco in presentation, it is also impressionist and in my top picks.

    Love this; it reminds me about a past trip to NYC. I wonder if it would be better if you cropped out the vertical orange lines on the left hand side?

    Really like this as an image, though IMO it's a bit too abstract for Impressionism.

    Well if this doesn't qualify as 'Modern Life' I don't know what will. Good eye for seeing this and you chose the right technique to carry it off beautifully. Very well done.
