This is the second time I started to shoot Philadelphia's City Hall, it always seems to be a challenge.

The first just seems unbalanced to me. I don't feel it works and it does NOT seem to fit with the style of the others or of your bridge series (or even the colour night shots on your web page). It has a much more 'dynamic' feel that your other compositions and sticks out. I would omit it.

Numbers 3 and 4 work best for me. The burned corners are lovely in 3 and the vignette of OOF blur is a unique technique in 4. 5 is a very lovely reflection shot. It is worthwhile as part of the series, but is more 'ordinary' or 'predictable' (for me) than the others.

Beautiful!  All of them.  Just when I pick my fave, another one crops up.  Are these multiple image comps for HDR?

Very cool shots indeed! How about a little insight to equipment, post processing etc?
 

I live about 25 miles outside of CC Philly in North Wales, but I never had time to shoot the city scapes much. I'm getting the itch though.

Keep'm coming.

I really enjoyed your bridge shots and like these a lot also.  They also remind me of my time spent in Philly over several years---I used to do the Phil. Museum of Art Craft Show and walked by this building every morning on my way to the venue.  Your Reading Terminal shots reminded me of the same too since I usually went there for breakfast.  I evidently missed your concourse shots and have just gone back and looked at them--very nice.  I have some favorites but like all of it.

Congratulations on your inclusion in Lenswork.  I haven't received my LW #78 yet--looking forward to seeing your work there.
