    Theme: City

    I like Street Photography but this time I want something broader. Anything related to cities is good: architecture, urban landscape, street scenes, street photography, ...

    When you post your picture, let us know where (in which city) it was taken! :smile:


    Two examples (only the second one is mine):

    São Paulo, Brazil
    8703823442_9082a048e8_c.



    Montréal, Canada
    8720532360_8e59c88b79_c.


    Weekly Challenge Rules

    The challenge will be open from Wednesday through Monday, with a winner announced on Tuesday. Everyone gets to submit 2 photos shot with an m4/3 camera in line with the chosen theme. The winner of the previous challenge gets to choose the new theme (topics can be anything under the sun) and serves as the judge for his/her weekly challenge.

    For obvious purposes, the judge is disqualified from participating in his/her own weekly challenge. Instead, he/she should post up to 2 photos as examples to start out the challenge. Should the winner not be able to commit to being the next judge, the responsibility is passed on to the runner-up.

    Contests are scheduled to open on Wednesday of each week. On Tuesday of the following week, the judge will name a blue ribbon winner, a runner-up, and 1 honorable mention. As we all know, beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. We may not all agree with the chosen winners; the judge is encouraged (but not required) to state what criteria he used to decide on a winner.

    To make sure we don't break any Mu43 rules/regulations, by participating in this thread you are allowing the judge to repost your image for the sole purpose of announcing the winners for the Weekly Challenge.

    Under the boardwalk, or at least the grown-up city sized version of a boardwalk which, in this case, was an elevated freeway along the bank of the Brisbane river.

    P3073594.

    P3073597.

    Both with the E-M5 and the 17mm F/1.8 on my first real outing with the 17mm.

    Here are my two city pictures. Both were taken during my "off-time" on business trips. The first one was taken in Seattle whereas the second one is from good old Europe. :)

    I think these are both recycled from other threads . . . I don't know that I can really consider them as "official" entries for the contest. I just like showing off my city whenever possible. :)

    Found myself in New York City yesterday and took these as part of a series.

    The first is in the Midtown Tunnel going into Manhattan, and the second is $12 later, in Tribecca.

    Both shot using E-PL5 and a Cannon 50mm FD.
