*** Official BimmerPost Photo Contest #44: Cityscapes ***

Official BimmerPost Photo Contest #44: Cityscapes

BACKGROUND:

This should be easy for many of you who aimlessly wander around a city with their camera. For those of you who don't, I'm sure you've taken some beautiful vacation photos that would fit this theme.

THEME:

For this contest, submit your photos that include at least three buildings, a ground, and sky. The ground can be gravel, paved, grass, water, etc. The sky can be blue, black, red, have clouds, stars, etc.

This leaves a lot of leeway, but your photo must include all three items (3+ buildings, ground, and sky). The photo does not need to be landscape-style, nor does it need to be shot from near the ground. So, be creative and stand out from traditional ways of taking cityscape photos.

Good luck!

IMPORTANT DATES:

Entries must be submitted to this thread no later than Sunday, November 6th @ 11:59 PST. Voting begins the following day and ends on Friday, November 11th.

RULES:

1. Any interpretation of the theme that falls within Bimmerpost.com rules is welcome.
2. You must be the person that took the photo. Previous photos are acceptable as long as you are the one that captured the image.
3. One submission per contest, and you cannot resubmit a photo that you've submitted before in a previous contest.
4. Images must be no larger than 800 px in any direction. Links to larger images are allowed but you must have one that is under 800 px for the poll.
5. All contestants must host their own pictures (which includes hosting them on Bimmerpost).
6. All images must have a title.
7. While post processing in Photoshop is allowed, adding or removing parts of the picture is not. In the event a photo is suspected to be "photo-chopped," the contestant will be asked to provide the original picture.

Not to toot my own horn but I feel like mine is "different" in that it focuses more on light and color as a subject than the buildings in the background.

about 100-200 frames in school and if I am working add another 150-300 on top of that. Not to mention if I have assignments I have to shoot outside of class which I usually do like 2-3 days a week.

and here I thought you were done with school... well... that sucks.

I guess look on the bright side... you'll be too busy to watch the Buckeyes pummel the Badgers this weekend.

Popular vantage point, eh? Like the church pics in Ramsau. All taken from the same spot.
