Great shots. Plenty of others disagree, but i think urban images can get away with being a little unusual. on that last one, "where the heavy clouds darken the sky", is that noise at the bottom? or just reflection?

Thank you, Frank. I looked at the originals and the "noise" is there. It looks like a wet spot or oil slick on the road that's reflecting the lamppost. Maybe I should have cloned it or cropped it out.

More lit windows but these ones were taken early in the morning...

Nice overall work. I particularly like 4 (10) and 6. BTW, and this is not a criticism, you can straighten out the buildings if you want, in some cases. But you will lose large parts of the image. So it's a trade off.

Thank you, JMVR, Frank.

Yes, I sometimes do "lens correction" on PS CS5. Other times, I'm already happy with my creation (after post-processing) that I'm afraid of doing further "lens correction" because I might also like what I see and then won't be able to decide.

Default #9 on 44th st.

That #9 on 44th st. is really cool. An excellent juxtaposition of motion and stationary elements. Dynamic and it has 3D quality. Now that's a city in motion!

Thank you, LTZ470, JMVR.

#10) This HDR is from a single RAW image processed using Photomatix. I took it from the roof parking lot of Port Authority. With the setting sun behind me, I guess I didn't need to shoot at very low speeds to show building detail and window contents.

You've got to get started on that book project. These are better than anything else I've seen for this genre.

Thanks a lot, Barbarian. To be honest, I still don't know how to go about it.
