Bahadir,

I think you've done well with the edits, also the 2nd one. I did notice you "turned off the lights"... I think that was a wise move (cloned out or what did you do?)

With the foreground just that bit more visible now (in detail) I think it adds to the fantastic "sky capture".

Thanks for your edittingwork... sorry I didn't offer to do it myself ...

Paul

Sir Alex! I am so glad to have shared this effect with you Nature awaits us the capturers of light, with her innumerable creations!

..........................

Boily, I'm feeling very lucky to have caught that moment. You know, even some fiddling with camera settings (orlow battery:G) couldmake you miss an opportunity forever! Thanks for your encouraging feedback about the edits which I completely owe to Paul's suggestion...

.............................

Paul,thank you again for the idea, which was most important! Btw, you did not only gave the idea but oversaw the way it is executed! Yes, I clonned out the lightsjust because you simply mentioned 'city lights'in your first reply:-)

The evening lights / dark city scene in the foreground is needed to add composition to both photos, you've done well. I can just make out the street lights I remember from an earlier set of posts (of your view over the bay, evening and morning versions)... (yes I remember... just!)
which gave meeven further inspiration...

Great sky in this one Bahadir. A very rare shade of colouring. Very cool. I couldn't help but notice the horizon looks askew. Is this the actual perspective of the photo? Just wondered......cheers......Don.

Especially in 'the red sky' shot? That's somethingI noticed also while doing the edit, but simply ignored. This isalso the reason I could not simply use the rectangular marquee tool to select the sea and the land!Must haveeven accentuated it with the edit I think...

Thank you, I have always admired your expertise.

i had a go and managed to just get a bit more forground detail, i took the original and lightened it up with levelsso the road was visible, then blened the 2 together and then duplicated the blend layer which made the sky look more like original,then messed about with curves till it looked better,left lights on as in reality they would be and i dont think they distract but help define the road, and finaly squared up the road

Very nice edit, Gary. Thanks for taking your time. When the foreground is lighter, it is indeed better to leave the lights turned on, as I also did with myfirst edit. After all, I've known you asa man of good taste
