It has been set. Thing is, I am not sure if that is EDT or GMT. I guess we will find out as I believe this is the first time it has been done. This is a moderator function so you will need to ask one of us to do it. I certainly don't mind if it helps.

Ok, it is CST. haha. I will set it appropriately.

wow these are great pictures. i love the october sunrise, both the zoom and the regular one. they show a side of uptown that i haven't seen too many pics of. it shows the spread and density, slight oxymoron?, of uptown, and makes me more and more impatient for the year 2010 to arrive. all in all, great pics from everyone.

Gorgeous shots, everyone!!

Man how tough is this. I am really leaning towards October Sunrise by UL (minus the Zoom). That shot is freggin GREAT !.

However, I am also torn by Mo's shots (both of them). I am really enjoying the pic from E. Morehead, which I think is one of the best "money shots" of the city.

Urrrrgh... Can we vote for two?! :rolleyes:

Awesome job guys !

(BTW, Carolina Blue by Mugen682 is a slammin' shot as well. I am really appealed to that shot with the differing heights.)

Mugen that Sunset Falling photo is just stunning....all the different colors. Wow!

All these photos are excellent...makes me want to go buy a new camera with better zoom and higher resolution :)

Thanks, I was very lucky to get that shot for sure as I left work at just the right time to catch it...

I'm intrigued by that angle you captured in your pics. I wasn't aware there were any good view spots between North Davidson Street and Independence Blvd.

And btw, I would definately recommend a nice camera as speed and image processors have gotten so much better over the past few years. In difficult times like sunrise and sunset, ive noticed that can make all the difference.

The October Sunrise shot was taken from Cordelia Park just off N Davidson St at about 7am earlier this week. It really is one of my favorite angles of the skyline.

One more day until this poll closes guys, so hurry up and vote if you haven't done so already! The top 5 entries will be picked to run in the finals round. That poll will open immediately after this poll is closed. Good luck to all the entries, and I'd have to say this has been a great turn out, especially for the first time!

No I decided at the beginning of this poll to make a rule change. It will the top 5. I initially made it the top 3 because I thought there wouldn't be so many good entries, but since we have a lot and several are withing a few votes of each other, I thought it would be better to include the top 5 in the finals poll. This is the same way it works in other Urban Photo Contests that I've seen, and I thought that the top 5 would be more representative of the preliminary votes. Check out the Charlotte Urban Photo Contest rule thread that is stickied.
