Manhattan long exposure sunset
« on: September 16, 2013, 02:48:24 PM »

I just found a Manhattan long exposure sunset that I did a couple of months ago and thought I'd post it here for C&C.

Lovely image.  If I were to do anything, I might crop in from the right just enough to eliminate the tree - say half way from the right frame edge and the right-most skyscraper.

Wonderful light. I agree with the cropping suggestion.

Love the parallels.  Agree with removing the tree.

 Yes get the axe out and you have a very worthwhile image. :)

I think that an important part of the subject here are the poles in the foreground, especially since they cover more than the half of the image. Therefore, I would suggest increasing their luminosity just a little bit. In LR you could add a gradient filter from the bottom and play with the shadows/exposure sliders to see what works out for you. Mind you, just a suggestion. The image is very nice as is.

Just to give you an idea what I'm talking about, I took the liberty of editing the photo in PS. I hope you don't mind? If you do, I'll remove it.

I have had another look and the above suggestion has definite merit.

You have two different "things" going on...one nearly dark foreground of pier pilings, and then the colorful "half" skyline...these are working against each other. The pilings look better with shadows pulled up...but is it successful as a whole? I'm not so sure. You might look at image with the bottom half cropped off as well...although the right half of skyline is sort of blunt. Nice colors...I live here...so it's nice to see someone take the time to go after shots like this.
