Here are some great city photos by Andrey Pomyantovskiy. These shots beautifully capture the cities and have a very serene and quiet quality to them. Click on the city names to see a larger version of the images.
To truly appreciate these photos, you must go visit The Big Picture and see the higher resolution photos with captions. Here are just some of the entries for National Geographic's 2010 Photo Contest or you can check out the winners from previous years.
