absolutely awesome...especially the night pic and how you captured the firework exploding in the background...

i've always wanted to go to Detroit

These aren't my pics, which is why the links are at the bottom of the photo, and why I said that I got them from Flickr. I just want to make that very clear as I always try to do.

The photo of the Comerica Tower's crown is great. Thanks for posting.

I love that view of Midtown. One of America's greatest urban neighborhoods.

Detroit would have a terrific skyline without the overwhelming RenCenter.

Thank you for bringing these various photographers to the attention of SSP members.

Here is my own contribution:

Detroit in a heavy smog and/or fog looking south from New Center to Downtown.

The fog does wonders to cover up some of the gaps east of downtown from the disinvestment/urban renewal/poletowning.

Lovely work everyone!

Midtown's looking good though.:)
