Beautiful lights and great exposure. Not entirely vertical though which is a shame. If it were my image, I'd also remove the rather strange bit of reflection bottom right which does not seem to relate to anything in the rest of the photo. But nice!   Posted: 09/03/2023 03:10:17

Wow! Lots of lights,Blacks and whites, some colored flags and a subdued penthouse. I think I would do some contrast changes with the dodge and burn tool on the 3 layers below the pent house. I would then make the flags pop out with their colors. Make it look like a celebration! I would play with removing that darkened building on the left and its reflection. Bring out those flags would be where I start.
You might even consider a Kandy colored gradient on the whole photo. Lots of possibilities here. Have fun with this one.   Posted: 09/11/2023 15:47:16

Very colorful and striking image. I like the contrast between the yellow lights and blue in the center. The exposure and contrast is very good to have nothing blown out. I do like what Judith did to straighten it.   Posted: 09/12/2023 17:10:31

At my local Camera Club I get teased for my obsession with 'verticals'...!   Posted: 09/13/2023 05:24:26
