    Excellent as usual. I really like the Fayetteville Street photo with the red and green light towers, and the capitol building at the far end of the street.

    The tilt/shift shot of the ice rink has an unreal quality to it, suggesting its all a model. Very cool effect.
    I agree with John, the Fayetteville St shot of the capitol is outstanding.
