I especially like the first one, though I wish the top of the flag were not cropped out of the image. If you can't include the top, you might want to consider digitally removing the entire flag.

Hey, you were in my part of the world! I really like the one showing the clouds over the John Hancock building. That is way cool. Lucky you had a beautiful day. --Try coming back in January.
Maybe I'll purposely take pics one January day and post them . . . .

Do you enjoy the Sigma lens? Did you have to do much work to correct distortion? Great images Dave. Nice and sharp.

Number 1 wowed me. But number 3 blew me away, that is great shot that really conveys the feel of that city to me. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks Mike, Gretchen, Bryan and James for your comments.
Good point about the flag Mike. I applied some vertical perspective correction on this image which resulted in a crop off the top. When I take this sort of shot I always try and allow for this but dont always get it quite right !
Gretchen we only had two nights there but would have loved to stay longer. Sorry but I'll pass on your suggestion to visit in January - I belong to a warm bodied species !
Bryan about 5-10 degrees of vertical perspective correction on the first image and a small amount on 2 and 4 but I can't remember the exact figures. I dont really have another lens for comparison purposes but I've certainly been more than happy with the Sigma 17-70 lens. It does most of what I need.
James I was lucky with that cloud in the third shot but it makes the image I think.
