I'm so undecided - I love the skyline and the way that the X100 handles low light, I also like the perspective view of this little promenade providing a lead in. But the brighter light of the building on the left tries so hard to dominate the scene and drag my eye over there.

@Curly: You are so right, i have a fascination for the night lights of the growing city. I made this shot wanting to set the context of were i was: "Las Bovedas"-"The Vaults" is an XVII Spanish Fort, that then became a Jail in the XIX century, just below of were i am standing to take the shot there a torture vaults used in the XIX century to keep prisoners (when the tide rose, water goes in the vaults and fills them with seawatter. The well lit building you see on the left is an early XX century building, constructed on top of the fort stuctures, this buildinng has held Panamas Supreme Court, Parlament, Foreign affairs office and now is the National Culture Insitute. Thaks so much for taking the time to share our love for photography.
