    I got this shot of Atlanta just tonight from the top of Stone Mountain during one of the best sunsets I have witnessed.

    Results

    Some truly amazing work here! Its been really hard picking a winner.

    Master-D: Lovely Shot, its the city I see every day and it never ceases to amaze me how beautiful she is. I like that you essentially got all the important tourists attractions in london, Big Ben, Houses of parliament, Battersea Power station, London Eye, Etc... Where was this picture taken from? If I could have made one change I would have tried to get a bit more of london, maybe a small panorama?

    Fcortese: A stunning classic, love the purple sky and the reflection it creates on the water. I would maybe have had a bit quicker exposure time to reduce some of the blur.. Was it tripod mounted?

    AlexH: Great crisp image full of detail, some great colours and like Fcortese's image love that the sky is illuminated. Good use of the panorama format. On a side note, had a look at your Flickr and you have some truly spectacular pictures. Especially liked the ones of the Rehab centre.

    Ravaroo: Great composition, Would have maybe have tried it in B&W as their are some really nice shades in the picture. The metallic structure gives it a really interesting perspective because it makes it look like your in a bubble staring into the city.

    mackmgg: For a iPhone! Simply Amazing. Love they way it handled the exposure. Great outline of the city and the sky looks stunning. I also like the sun peaking in from the side.

    JAWJr: Not bad, I like that the opera house is the centre of the pic, Good use of the rules of third. Maybe I would have included a bit more of the city.

    fitshaced: Stunning, Not a lot more to be said than that.

    stradale33: I like this interpretation of the contest topic. When we think of Cityscape i think most of us think of tall skyscrapers, This is the only picture where the buildings are relatively small (in comparison to some of the pictures posted here). I think the B&W compliment the older buildings very well. Great shot. How many pictures did you take to stitch it together?

    Rich-212: I can see Birmingham already has their Christmas decorations up. Like London. The reflection on the glass is very nice.

    Keleko: Wow! What a stunning sunset. The colours mixed with the clouds are truly superb. Really like the composition and I like how it goes from light (at the top) to dark. The buildings lighting also give it a nice touch.

    hansolo669: Another stunning sunset! Like that its got life to it, the birds and the ducks in the pond... The cloud almost looks like its got some HDR effect applied to it. perfectly exposed with great vivid tones.

    AppLCII: And another stunning sunset. Great composition, Great colours. Like the silhouette of the buildings with the Washington monument lit up.

    oblomow: Jaw-dropping colours. Very simple and minimalistic. Good framing, would have been interesting if there was a nice sun set behind. But overall very nice.

    UltimaMC: Nice light trails, I think there is a bit too much light flare (was it added later or did you use a filter??). It would have been nice if you managed to capture the ad without anything in front of it.

    fitshaced - good job - well done on the win.

    On a side note - can we go back to putting the theme of the contest in the title. For some reason we stopped doing it a few weeks back.

    PS Great judging Nicolasdec

    congrats ftishaced and all runners up. Nicholasdec, my entry was tripod mounted and long exposure to capture moving boat lights on the river. None were passing at the time of this shot, but you can see some car traffic lights on FDR Drive across the river. Nice job, appreciate the C&C.
