Nicely taken picture of the sunset during the golden hour. The poles at the foreground provided the leading lines.

I prefer the blue sky of the original. Well done.   Posted: 09/09/2023 00:11:30

Interesting view of Manhattan Nice and sharp
I prefer this crop to the one you did in July I prefer the July blue sky but this sky is interesting and gives a different feel to the image   Posted: 09/09/2023 21:30:44

I agree that you chose a good sky replacement for this. However, the water is not picking up any of the golden tones and so it looks like two separate photos to me. You could remove some of the gold tones from the sky, or use a mask to better blend the water and sky colors. They do not of course need to be the same, but there needs to be some "connection" between the two of them.   Posted: 09/12/2023 13:27:30

Nicely done. I agree with Dorinda, the water needs a little more golden high-lites. I also would like to see this from a lower angle.   Posted: 09/24/2023 07:08:23
