Dz, all due respect, but you do your best work with boots on the ground in Boston, rather than from the hills of Woburn, Arlington, etc.
1. Thank you for appreciating a subset of my contributions here. You have also added many good pictures lately.
2. It isn't always easy to get into the city during daylight hours, especially particular areas of it.
3. The city is clearly superior to its skyline, so it makes sense that being within it will often read better than the views from the suburbs.
4. Even if my "boots on the ground" pictures are superior to my skyline shots, the specifics of my camera (mainly 30x optical) give me a comparative advantage over most of the other posters for the further out skyline pictures. I don't have that same advantage within the downtown areas. So I will continue to deliver what's typically the largest, clearest shots from locations outside of the city, even if my other pictures are better overall.

Sharing praise for 'best' doesn't mean other subsets aren't also appreciated.
Many of the zoom shots, especially from practical/accessible vantage points, are quite cool.
More like...if you happen to notice Boston was visible as a blip on the horizon from Chelmsford, that might not be among the best ; )
Always grateful for the photo posts from you and many on this board

I really appreciate the skyline shots as they show how far our city's skyline has stretched outward and documents all the filling in that has occurred in just the past 10 or so years. Great work to you both on all your contributions.
