Well here's my entry then ^_^ (not eligible for voting of course)

This is a view of Tokyo, as seen from a ferry on Sumida river. If you want to know exactly where this photo was taken, just click here (http://maps.google.com/maps?q=35.657902%C2%B0%20N%20%20%20139.768417%C2%B 0%20E&ie=UTF-8&oe=utf-8&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a&um=1&sa=N&tab=wl) for the google map view.

One more example entry: a poor, violated puppy who sits outside of a coffee house in the city center.

Well, took this one whilst in Cornwall and it's the only photo I could find around a city. So here goes nothing ...

I hope this can qualify as an entry. I made this pic back in July, last year. The storm ended just before sundown. The whole city was glowing in orange. The colors were a bit dim, so I played a bit with the saturation.

Sydney, Australia along Darling Harbour, as I recall. I wish I had something more recent, but I didn't have a working camera the last few times I've ventured into the city. And, dope that I am, I didn't bring a camera when I went to New York City before moving out here ^^; Ah well.

I've adjusted levels and curves, and applied some sharpening.

Hong Kong, taken last year with Sony DSC-P32 on a boat on the way from Kowloon to Hong Kong island. Edited with some contrast addition to make the picture more visible. Size also decreased into 1024x768.

EXIF submitted.

Here's my entry. Taken from the top of the Liberty Memorial just this past March.
I did absolutely nothing to it.

On the metro bus system of downtown Seattle (hope this counts as "people in city"). Desaturated.

Downtown Battle Creek, on the corner of Division Street and Michigan Avenue. City Hall and United Methodist Church, at night. Taken from the car at the stop light.

There are no modifications to this file.

This is a picture of an old English Church that I took. It gets a lot of tourists from all different countries visiting it quite a lot. It's not much of a big deal to me though as I walk past it everyday to get to College or the Town Centre. XD
