Can somebody replace this parking lot with something more aesthetically pleasing? Thanks...

Something like this perhaps, spent more time looking for a suitable foreground, than doing a quicky. would take a lot more time to do better. ... Jack

how about this

I like the 1st one the best. I'm looking for something that still keeps the buildings as the primary focus of the shot. The 2nd and 3rd ones draw more attention up front IMO. Any other thoughts/ideas are welcome! Thanks for the help! :)

Hi, the problem is to find a suitable foreground to import, it needs to be of equal quality especially so if you need to upsize it to any degree ... you then need to tweak it to acheive the same mood ie. your shot is taken as night is beginning to fall, so ideally that has to be matched ... it isn't always easy to get the match right. So all in all your project has more to it than meets the eye. ... Jack

OK, My stab at it

That was my first thought if I was going to tackle it, use water maybe even a nice sunset beach scene. All I would add would be to blur off slightly the water reflection.



Another thing to experiment with would be allowing some blue to be picked up in the windows they would probably pick up some of that water as they reflect back.
