Hi,
I am very interested in the city and decided to set up this thread. It is predominantly for pictures of many lights or city skylines at night.
I though it would be a good idea for people to post their own photos. I found these on the internet for inspiration.

Sorry. Images like this one. I think it looks quite cool.

Yepp, interested to see some city skylines taken by fellow MR. :)

Which city is that featured in the image above?


Oh, and I might aswell add:
City Lights = Light Pollution = Annoyed Astronomers :p

Well, not exactly cityscape pictures, but there are some of the pics i think fits the bill. These are Toronto as seen from the Skypod of the CN tower. It's so high, you can even see the earth's curavture. :D

Taken with a Fuji4700 i got from '99. Considering the age, that camera takes awesome pictures. :cool:

Lots of cities have towers. ;) I'm from Toronto, and ®îçhå®?'s photo isn't Toronto or the CN tower.

I really can't guess. Could it be Vancouver? Seattle? San Francisco? Sydney?

Here's 5 of the same skyline. It's the world's only lights and fireworks show that happens every day. Sometimes there's no fireworks, but there's always a light show. Look at all 5 photos and watch how the lights in the buildings change.

Edit: Wow, just noticed. This photo must have been from at least a year ago as the IFC Tower is still under construction. Now, it towers above the Bank of China Tower.

^^Yes it is, and these weren't from a year ago. They're from 5 months ago, at most.

I didn't think anyone would try describing them! :p They're flashing and changing colours all the time, so I thought it was cool and different. :)

yea, that's a reflection on a window. There are no outdoor observation area on the skypod, it's a small little room, so all the viewing has to be done from behind the glass. :p

The docks at night
I went to the docks on Thursday and it was great. Wish i could see it at night though. The coolest photos are those that have over exposure and the car headlights have moved creating a stream of light.
Good photos though

I remember MARTA. I visited an old friend in ATL a few years back. I took the MARTA to go sight-seeing in downtown while the friend went to work. I have to say I met some of the nicest homeless people touring around--even got my own personal tour guide one of the days. I was leary at first, but as soon as a passing cop smiled and started chatting with the guy I felt a little bit more at ease (stayed in very public places with the money hidden).... :o

Yea that North/south...east/west crap is too small for big ol GA.

I hope you're joking. Of course that is Toronto. You can easily see City Hall, Canada Life building, Sunlife Towers, Hilton & Sheraton Hotels, the Golf Course off Spadina that is now Condo construction... I can go on.
