I cant believe nobody commented on this shot I thought it was really cool!

A couple of things that I thought when looking at this:

1) I dont really like the line of lights at the "horizon" - i find it distracting. Maybe you could have got a little lower to crop them out?
2) Personally I really like the silhouette type look of this but your trees are not dark enough.

I hope you dont mind but I followed my vision - what do you think?


p.s. excuse the quick edit

hi Dom this is a nice shot,the only criticism i have is that the lights are a bit blown, other wise very good.

Alex :cool:

DomCotton, thanks for your comments and the edit. I'm trying to learn PS ... would you mind telling me how you accomplished it?

as far as the picture goes, I had this vision of the palm trees as guardian angels of the city below .... I thought the lights of the city helped clarify this, although one of them is a bit bright. I do like your interpretation though.
