#1 November 2014 - Metropolis at night (VERDICT) by M.I.B. 01.12.2014 14:08


Thank you Hippy and Darren for taking up this month's challenge! Now...one shot presented me almost precisely what I wanted to see, clearly visible distinct buildings, modern, grand ones, very nicely illuminated in the night, buzzing with activity around them (a metropolis) and I can't help but notice, pictured form a very good angle. The only "problem" is that.....I would've preferred to see the "core" of the metropolis, some skyscrapers, bridges, casinos...seen from a not-so-high altitude instead of just the airport alone.

The other pic presented me a beautiful blanket of light stretched over a metropolis which you can tell it's buzzing, viewed from the cozy cockpit of a copter. Just what I wanted to see....if only the copter had flown lower, so I can see the infrastructure in greater detail.

At this point I found myself in a dilemma, should I pick the one that shows the metropolis itself, but from way above, or should I pick the one that shows pretty much what I wanted to see except that it is limited to the airport? In the end, I came to the conclusion that the airport is still part of the mighty metropolis, it shows the buzzing night life of the metropolis (part of it at least) and...it was a looky pic, while the other one was just too high and not detailed enough, so.....I shall declare Darren's entry to be the winner of this contest! Congrats Darren, well done!

Well I never! Can't trust that rascally varmint to vote for ME everytime. He must have a mind of his OWN! Drat! Ok the Gator has had his tantrum and has calmed down. Congratulations on a beautiful pic Darren! You deserve to win BIGTIME!
