Default My first evening landscapes attempt

Hi guys-

I took this pic last Sunday during halftime of the Packers game. It was around 5:45PM.

Here is the original.



The color is a bit dull, so I boosted it up a bit.

Hiro,

I like this, the saturation/levels bump works well. IMO a bit more would be even better.

Hi Hiro,

Great shot and I agree with Bob, a little boost in saturation might help. But then, that's a personal preference on my part as I like my colors to be a bit more vivid.

Soon, I suppose your evening shots at halftime of Packer games will show snow on the ground.

Congratulations, Hiro-

That is, in my opinion, a really excellent evening landscape. The pp bost really improved the photo a lot.

Have a great day.

Nice shot, Hiro! I am glad you can go out to shoot pictures at night in Wisconsin. Out here in California, there is a good chance you will get mugged and have your camera relieved. Keep up the good work!
