Hi everyone: I definitely agree - a well-deserved congratulations ... this is such a wonderful image! In fact, this shot makes an awesome selection for BetterPhoto's monthly "Where in the World?" quiz. It will be featured in the new issue of BP's PhotoFlash newsletter!

So please don't give away the location, June - let's see if anyone can come up with the correct answer! In several days, I'll check back to see how things are going.

Again, June, congrats on your excellent photo. And, for everyone else, have fun guessing where this scene can be found!

The Big Apple? New York City? ... Gorgeous skyline, June Marie. :-) #889263

Dirck Harris 11/4/2004 12:42:18 AM

Isn't that Chicago? #889269

Janice Hobson 11/4/2004 3:08:43 AM

Looks like San Diego, California! #889387

Elizabeth T. Schoch 11/4/2004 3:30:06 AM

It's Manhattan, probably taken from a boat on the Hudson River.

Scott Pedersen 11/4/2004 4:25:24 AM

Nice skyline. Wonder what it would look like at night? Im gonna say Manhatton too. #889586

Kathryn (Love) Scheet 11/4/2004 5:04:40 AM

I'm guessing Boston #889651

karen 11/4/2004 6:18:09 AM

I'll take Manhattan!!! Great shot.

Aaron Peterson 11/4/2004 7:04:22 AM

That is Boston Harbour. This is the water side of the financial district.

NICE SHOT! #889865

Aaron Peterson 11/4/2004 7:14:12 AM

I'm such an idiot! Th Twin towers sat right behind these buildings. It's lower manhatten. #889887

Julia S. Chadwick 11/4/2004 7:34:53 AM

I would have said Baltimore Maryland, but apparently everyone thinks it's Lower Manhatten. #889930

Lucie 11/4/2004 8:20:48 AM

Where in the W O R L D ???
I think this beautiful skyline is somewhere on the east coast of Canada.

ok...Halifax, Nova Scotia. #889985

Deanna W. Thompson 11/4/2004 8:32:20 AM

Manhattan!! Lovely shot. #890008

katy Sinclair 11/4/2004 8:33:52 AM

Looks like Vancouver, British Columbia to me. #890010

Lisa Wendling 11/4/2004 8:47:56 AM

Love the pic. Reminds me of Chicago. #890029

Odelia 11/4/2004 9:04:14 AM

Great photo. Looks to me like the Manhattan skyline. #890056

Kathryn (Love) Scheet 11/4/2004 10:27:17 AM

ready to change my guess... NY - I think that pointy bldg in the center(not the green one) is the Empire State Bldg. - maybe shot from the Brooklyn bridge??? #890178

Patricia 11/4/2004 11:18:37 AM

It's Seattle! #890252

Joan Miller 11/4/2004 11:53:50 AM

Vancouver, B.C. #890300

Stephanie Daoust 11/4/2004 12:30:54 PM

This is definitely NYC from the Hudson river! I recognize the 2 WFC. #890358

Connie Diring 11/4/2004 3:04:05 PM

Looks like the Windy City to me. Is that the John Hancock building in the background? My guess....Chicago #890580

Donna L. Palmlund 11/4/2004 3:31:57 PM

I'll take a shot at Portland, Maine~Donna #890637

Adrienne La Rosa 11/4/2004 8:17:19 PM

This is lower/downtown Manhattan, where the Twin Towers used to be. It's taken from the New Jersey side (my guess would be Jersey City). The black building is 1 Liberty Plaza and I think the building with the dome is the American Express building. The smaller brown buildings is Battery Park City.

How's that for detail? ;)

I sure miss this view. #890946

Leni Gaston 11/4/2004 10:17:34 PM

It looks like Seattle to me. I am going by the building with the green top. #891023

Kip T. Berger 11/5/2004 12:09:03 AM

No clue on the location, but I think it is a very nice shot! Congrats for your being in the newsletter June! #891060

Beth A. Schmoyer 11/5/2004 7:36:12 AM

It's the lower end of NYC taken across the Hudson. #891813

Emily Godlewski 11/5/2004 6:55:30 PM

Great shot. I agree that it is San Diego, California. Emily G. #892626

Sarah Capps 11/7/2004 7:48:11 PM

My first thought Manhatton but then I thought that would be two easy, Then I thought it was Seattle, but were are the Moutains behind Seattle. After looking at it for a long time, I am going to have to say Manhatton. Great shot, I love the red boat, It makes it look like living in a big city could acutally be fun.
I am from southern Idaho and just seeing pictures of skylines like this blows me away. #896427

Buddy Purugganan 11/8/2004 6:15:21 PM

Detroit? Or Dallas...... #898565

Kerry Drager 11/16/2004 8:33:04 AM

Hi everybody: Excellent guesses! But for those of you who guessed the New York City skyline ... well ... you're right! Here's more from June:
    "It is specifically lower Manhattan, west side on the Hudson, featuring One and Two World Financial Center and Battery Park City ... shot from Jersey City, N.J. I shot this on the third anniversary of 9/11, waiting for the tribute in lights to shine."
So, thanks for taking part in BetterPhoto's "Where in the World?" quiz. And again, June, an awesome photo!
