Folks, any appeal here? Will appreciate your comments. Used a wide lens at sunrise. A bit of pp: colour saturation and sharpening and shaved off part of the sky to emphasise the roofs.

Thanks.

Jaki.

I think cropping some of the foreground would help - most of it is just dark and doesn't add anything. Once cropped, it seems a bit busy without a real focus - the downtown buildings are a bit too far off and a bit hazy. I have some pictures with the same kind of feel - that they are close to what I really want or like, but just can't seem to get there with processing.

Easier said than done, but would taking it a few blocks to the left help? The downtown to the left and a shot right down the road leading away to the right.

Jaki,

I know its not tilted... But it gives that feeling because of the topography of the
land is going down... I think... Anyway. The tall building in the background is off to
the left so far it fails to help the capture. It should be... You know... At the thirds
position.Or out of there...But even then it's way back there. The sky didn't help
you either...

BUT ! ! ! I like this picture and it hasapleasant feel to it.


I think there is a picture in this scene but re-take may be your only hope.

i like the pano format version with less foreground..

its a pleasant shot, but the sky and haze take away some of its magnificance.. i think you could have used longer focal length here to make the distant city appear a little larger and closer..
