I likes it!
Very effective shot!
I was, by way of the only valid avenue of critique that I could muster about this pic, about to point out that this should have been posted in the Architecture section -- but then, I actually thought about it. (I do that, sometimes.)
To a lot of people, I suppose that this is a landscape! Buildings and raised concrete planters are the only "mountains" and "shady glens" that many in the inner cities ever know.
Scary, and more than a bit tragic, but sometimes that's life in the megatropolis.
Oh...did I say that I liked the shot?

Thanks for the replies everyone. I wasn't really sure if this picture was worth posting. I had a hard time processing this picture because of the balance between the highlights on the empire building and the shadows on the bridge. There's some noticable noise in the previouspicture because I boosted the levels to bring detail to the shadows. I re-edited this picture and adjusted the white balance a little. Maybe this version is a little better. Also, can someone help me with that street light? Is there a way to lessen its intensity?

Hoooba, you could try selecting the bright street light (like with the magic wand tool) and using your choice of brightness/contrast controls to decrease the brightness. This may just turn it from a bright white spot w/a green fringe to a greyish spot w/ a green fringe.
You could also do the selection and then fill in the white with a light green and then reduce the density w/a brightness/contrast adjustment. Better yet, do it in layers with a layer mask and then just lower the layer opacity to get the intensity you want.
If this stuff doesn't do a good job, you might consider just cloning the light out entirely. It might be easier.

This is a really good shot. Love the composure. As far as the light goes, I think I'd be cloning it out. But as was pointed out, you could do a variety of things. Cheers....thekman.
