superakuma!

I like your picture very much, especially the path(s) made by the sun in the middle of the third vertical part

That´s why I would do a radical cropping. Hope you don´t mind

I took a creative liberty here hope you dont' mind. . . but I like the idea of the sun bringing in "life and color" onto the scene as it slowly creeps into view. i desaturated the building with a 30 pixel feather on the selection. . makes the sun look like it's actually bringing color into the scene as it rises. . .

Thanks you both for the reply. Soliz39, I really like what you done to my picture on desaturating the building. I wanted to do something like that to bring out the color of the sun but had no idea because of my limited ablity in photoshop and creativity. I will rework that on my copy and maybe even print it out.




Torgny, I don't mind you doing the crop on my photo. After you cropped it, my photo don't look like it was taken with a wide angle lens anymore which I don't really like. But after the crop it does look better because the point of view looks more straight forward and less distracting because now all the lines are straight. I wish the sidewalk road didn't curve or bend like that so I wouldn't have to crop it. But thanks for the tip though, next time I will look out for odd shape line that will mess up my pictures.

No problem I suggest maybe saturating the color even more to make it stand out. Good luck with it.
