Beautifully crisp and bright, despite the night sky.
Samarth: thanks a lot jewlya...
The light has blown off in a couple of spots but gorgeous view here, this must have been quite something watching live.
Samarth: fair enough, should've gone with 4 instead of 5 seconds...glad you liked it...

I left this one for last so that I can have uninterrupted pleasure of viewing. It is excellent and may be the best night cityscape I have seen on SC.

The control of light and available detail are excellent.

Going to my likeys for more viewing.
Samarth: too too kind louis, thank you...
AWESOME, going to my likeys
Samarth: thank you chantal...

WOW, now that is a cityscape photograph to be proud of, Sam!

I echo of the best, if not the best I've seen.

Going to my likeys too.
Samarth: thank you VERY MUCH kathryn...
Absolutely beautiful shot. Looks like a panorama shot. Nice choice of using B&W, it really brings out the details and clarity of this shot. Excellent image.
Samarth: thank you john...

Beautiful phot Sam.
Samarth: thanks andriy...
Lucky you, i didn't carry the tripod. Superb!!
Samarth: was deinitely worth lugging it just for this...
So photogenic, no wondered this is a frequently photographed location but not often presented in B&W. This sparkles Sam, an excellent interpretation.
Samarth: thank you alistair...
You nailed this Samarth...perfect

Similar to your pano (or is it your pano with toning?). Love it, except for the itsy brighty spot on the left which shoulda been cropped out by my opinion.

Samarth, this is amazing. I feel like I'm actually flying. Really.
Samarth: arrrgh, you and your pickiness...but yeah, fair enough...diff image from pano...
Samarth: :d...

Most impressive Sam - I dread to think how long you spent on it but it looks perfect. Waant to see this on my big screen at home.

Outstanding is the word ;o)
Samarth: thanks mike...surprisingly little time...probably took more than 3 times the amount of time for today's shot...

Very nice. I might have gone with a slightly quicker shutter to avoid the few place the lights got blown out!
Samarth: definitely, one second less would've been ideal...
Excellent work.
Samarth: thanks...

I'm so surprised that I like this picture so much, I'd always thought I'd prefer a colour night shot, but this Sam is superb. I admire your skill.
Samarth: thank you ellie... i saw a sepia cityscape a long time ago and i realised that the brown works surpisingly well with highlights...

Remembers me an old song "Big city nights" and I would even add big city lights
Samarth: smile...
