I commend your skills at capturing this image through a bus windo. The bright light low on the hills indicate sunset with the sun low in the sky.

As expected, the structure facing the camera is dark. To bring more detail into this area and also to reduce some of the slightly blown out highlights in the sky, I applied a curve and tweeked the curve. The changes are subtle and you may not notice them.   Posted: 02/07/2021 14:47:33

A wonderful illustration out the BUS as allows one to see the sights of the Northern Lights in B&W allows for a stepping back in time.   Posted: 02/10/2021 05:14:11

What a great photo. I love how the curve of the tree tops takes you left into the interesting light in the sky.   Posted: 02/11/2021 14:00:21

I love the flow in this image of both the clouds and the line of the hill. It's well composed and nicely sharp, considering you were shooting through a bus window. The B&W treatment is effective here for a landscape image.   Posted: 02/12/2021 08:17:36

Hi Barbara, Lovely image the panoramic crop and the placement of the building works well, combining with an interesting sky that really enhances, the B&W treatment is well done giving you a stark but at the same time a serene image.   Posted: 02/13/2021 05:59:25
