The idea is great and the colors are awesome, but in my opinion, there is a little bit too much noise.

This could be a wonderful photo, but I think that the skyline and the sky have too much noise..I voted for this one, but now I see it at higher resolution I don't like it anymore as before..

I like the composition but there is a good bit of noise and the building are a little fuzzy. A little more post processing (shapening & noise reduction) and it is an awesome pic.

Too much noise? Granted New York is a noisy town, but I don't hear anything. Granted, there may be some noise, but I love the overall look of this image. It really works. The sparseness of the foreground is fantastic juxtaposed against the skyline with the river providing just the right separation between the two.

PS: The Empire State Building is usually shot straight on. Having it at a slight angle is refreshing.

I really like this one. Yeah there is some noise, but it make it seem a little gritty and it's still beautiful. That sums up New York to me! Nice work!

Is there something wrong with the IFL's apostrophes?

Yes there is.

good Job, however I feel(my opinion) you should have tried to pull in more dynamic range in the sky, less noise and reduce the fringes around the city lights. I'm sure you used a tripod. Did you shoot this picture high ISO? what were your camera settings? Overall Good Shot.

This one has the potential to be amazing. But IMO, the noise ruins it.

Looks good. I think I would have liked the buildings to be a bit sharper. Maybe a bit less noise, I notice the noise most on the buildings. That's just my preference though, if you love it that's all that matters.

I think the noise gives the photo a very gritty vibe, I like it!

it's got a fair bit of noise itself, sure... but I think when IFL processes it, changes it to different resolutions and such, it produces a lot more jpeg compression artifacts. if you zoom in on the sky, the particularly "noisy" parts of the clouds, you can see the artifacts clearly. if the uploader were to upload the original photo to a different host, we might have a better quality wallpaper.

For those who voted without seeing the full resolution: In the Loupe when you click on a thumbnail to view the photo in the lightbox, hold you mouse pointer over the image to see a full resolution portion. Be patient, it's loading the whole image, but it does help to check for noise.

Can I ask the location of where this was taken? I swear I've been there before and I've been trying to remember the name to go back to it.

It takes a great photographer to make New York look this good!
