    Times Square, during last Saturday's protest. A bit obvious, but hey.

    Times Square cabs still "alive" and running despite Hurricane Irene.

    Some cities are bright and full of movement, and others you can barely tell are alive at night.

    Technically not the best shot, but I quite like it. Taken while I was on holiday.

    There were some really good shots in this week's contest. Well done! I'll jump right into the judging:

    El Cabong - I love the setting, the shot, the action, the activity, and the definite feel of the city being "alive." I think you captured a great photograph here, and it tells a story. Well done.

    JAWJr - It feels like the city is a living organism in this shot. The streets teaming with life, the moon above, the glow of light. Very nice.

    fitshaced - Very creative shot, and at the same time one that I keep gazing at. It's interesting and optically challenging for me to look at it. But I can't stop looking! I like your creativity.

    fcortese - Great shot. The feel of the motion blur screams that this is a city moving at a face pace. I like the color flooding in, the subject being the cabs, very nice shot, especially for this contest.

    baypharm - I guess the city is down there somewhere?

    epb87 - This shot is sort of the opposite of fcortese's shot. His felt almost frantic in the movement of the subject, but your's feels very laid back, and serene. Almost like an alternative to his shot. Instead of living in a hurry, you slowed it down a bit. I like it.

    Keleko - I like the shot. Good composition. It feels like there a hustle and bustle to this town. Good shot.

    Nicolasdec - Beautiful shot! What's left to say?

    mhami - This one is a classic. It's interesting how the people feel almost like ghosts or shadows in this picture. I like it.

    cambookpro - Interesting shot. Where was this shot taken? It feels like a very down to earth place.

    UltimaMC - I was wondering when a solid black and white photograph would enter the contest. Well done. I like the contrast. I've been on a street photography and a black and white kick lately, so I appreciate this shot.

    ipos - This shot feels like it's teeming with life. I love it. Not only does it capture the essence of the theme, but it's also a visually striking photograph. I love it. Well done.


    So, without further delay, here are the first, second, and third place entries:

    Third place: Nicolasdec
    Second place: El Cabong
    First place: ipos

    Congrats guys. Really great shots. Alright ipos, you're up!
