First both are very beautiful stunning pictures so don't let my critiques take away from your great work. The biggest issue is to me, it looks like your horizon is not level. Now this is pure personal opinion but I think the first one would look more dark and emotional if the city lights weren't in it. I know that is not something we can control, just saying. I like the little bit of color pop in the second one. Great work again.

I like both shots, really nice! The one thing I'd say, and that Mike already pointed out, is that the horizon isn't quite level, feels weird especially on a shot like this. That aside, I prefer the simplicity of the first one and it's much more natural looking, though don't get me wrong, the second one is great as well. Good job :)

No no.... I tried my best to keep the horizon level... it's actually my wide angle lens.. it's so wide that it captured the earth's curvature :lol:

I am just kidding :D

Thank you very much for the comments guys.. really appreciate it.

Next time I will keep these things in mind. This weekend I am going out and hopefully I will be able to find a good location and get some decent pictures.
