Teehee. The buildings don't look real. It's like looking at a model train scene, or something. They're so boxy and basic, and the sense of scale is off because you shot from such a distance. But I like it. *nods approval*

You need to sell this to the city for brochures. Makes downtown (Raleigh, I assume?) look very glamorous. Which it is. At night.

Great shot - really crisp with very little noise.

There's just something so enticing about nighttime cityscapes - so full of glamour and possibility.

Great shot! I love nighttime city skylines!

That is a great shot! Very twinkly as I like to say! I miss city lights and tall buildings. Severely lacking in my part of Florida

Bonny said...

I like this photo. It's hard to get a really great night shot like this unless you have a tri-pod. (I never seem to have mine when I need it...)
Great composition, too.
