Hey Bahadir, Great shot! Just as a thought, maybe it would be worth cropping a little of the foreground as imo it's a tad too dark. Great sky though! I'm very envious of your vista!

Dear Matt, you're right about the dark foreground. Yet,trying to brightening it up degraded the IQ in this case (only came up with tones of gray and a lot of noise!), probably due to the limited Dynamic range of my compact or the colours had left the ground due to the prevailing lighting conditions!!(but of course there are times I can regain the bright colours even with my compact!). As for the cropping...well it could be : )

@ bill43210: Actually, the peeking sunlight was an essential component of the image I intended to convey. Glad, to hear that it has worked!
Btw, the photos I stitched were not portrait orientation, but it is the 4:3 aspect ratio of compacts rather than the 3:2 of most DSLRs which make the final image look somewhat taller I think.
Thank you for the kind feedback!

What a wonderful view you have. I can smell the morning coffee on the balcony.

Wonderful capture of a very moody sky. I like the patch of bringt sky in the upper left of the picture, sort of offers hope of clear skies ahead.
