Yes, clearly one of the strongest. Not much more to be said.

The tip of orange makes it for me, a kind of hope at the end...

This tells a great story - not just about the city and it's inhabitants but about the photographer / you also. For me personally, I think this image as much as any in your collection, speaks volumes about your dedication to raising the bar, and to this project. For one thing, you've picked extremely challenging lighting as the range of exposure and I imagine you would have had to have taken dozens of shots to get this just right. I also really like the fact that the sun appears to be low - the light on the wall on the right is a very nice touch and really fits that depressing late Sunday mood. The view and the lighting seem to perfect for you to have just walked past here and snapped a single shot. All the other details are there too - particularly the glinting glass on the floor. From a composition point of view, would say this is one of your stronger images - particularly because of the use of black on the right - glad you didn't crop this out. Overall a great addition and like every other picture in here, an easy vote.

This is the city as I've known it. Behind every bank, brokerage or museum, there's an alley like this. Excellent capture.

Nice city shot!

Another great city image. I really can feel it.

So this is the way the world ends, neither with a bang nor a whimper, but with the loneliness of sad decay. The phallic presence of the building in the distance offers irony, not hope. Great, great image.

Killer image. It's got everything going for it. Comp, perspective, light, tone, meaning, etc. etc. Vote.

in my opinion, one of the best in the project...
