    I honestly don't understand why people get offended at stuff like this.
    You do know why they asks that right?
    They ask it because it's a really nice and 'professional' looking photo... that they don't think you can take lol.
    Take it as a compliment, because essentially that's what it is.


    Speedy- I can scrounge around for another one. Maybe I've got something else in my obsessively large collection.

    Ok, ok, no need to get uptight about it. Just with the "Denver, Colorado" at the bottom it looks like an Ad for Denver or something. Like Vroom said, take it as a compliment, the photo looks professional.

    And Vroom, I'm Speedy, not Ben:p

    Eeek!
    If you don't think that one fits go on without me. I didn't have much else since I haven't been to a good city location in awhile.

    I'll leave it up to you,

    Alright, after many hours of consideration, I'm gonna have to leave you out of this one Vroom. I know you've almost been in every one of these, but I really don't think it fits as a cityscape. So your spot goes to diduknowthat.

    I shall post it now

    Don't take it too hard vroom, I didn't get involved in this one either :p I posted a picture this morning but for some reason photobucket resizing wasn't cooperating so it was ridiculously large. Seeing as I was in a crunch for time I just said "aw screw it" and deleted my post. I woulda lost anyways :rolleyes: (Or won for the 4th time in a row :D )

    Ha, sorry for the tough decision. :p

    Mmmh, indeed. What I always forget is who is voting. I look at stuff in a artistic/ photographers point of view. So I'm looking to see if the shot is technically accurate and if it just works well as a photo etc. When most people here just vote based upon a shot that looks cool or has some connection with them, which obviously is expected.

    So here I am posting B&W's that most people probably think are out right boring lol :eek:

    I do agree. A lot of the voting is definitely...different, compared to a normal photographers point of view. It might be just me, but I have definitely noticed a voting style similarity (if that makes any sense) between a few of us.

    Don't get me wrong, that's definately a well composed shot, just the fact that it was one building when cityscapes are usually..well, lots of buildings:p
