These great photos, and 46 others, are part of "50 Beautiful Low-Light Cityscapes," a collection hosted on the curated photography web site Light Stalking,  It's impressive.  Other pages on the site are devoted to "36 Bright and Fun Shots of Lemons," "31 Gorgeous and Serene Photos of Japanese Temples," "47 Surprisingly Striking Photos of Wheat," and the like.  I'll be returning.

For another provocative and thematic collection of cityscapes, check out Chuck Wolfe's "Coloring the Urban Experience" on The Huffington Post.
