Default Midtown manhattan by night.

Here are couple shots from NJ looking at midtown.

The first one is the full frame, the second is the crop. I think the brushes in the foreground distracts the shot, cropping them out seems to give it more impact. What do you all think.

Here is one with a shorter exposure with at a higher iso, wanted a less silky effect with the water.

Nice shot - there's a distinct lack of nice skylines where I live. I prefer the lower ISO cropped version. I think the sharper reflections in the high ISO version draw the eye down and away from the city a bit. I'd crop a little off the left to remove that dark object as well.

Martin! I appreciate your detailed observations. Each point you mentioned, I looked again to the photo and agreed to it and to all.
