    Here is another pic of Boston which initially was terribly underexposed so I tried to make lemonade out of lemons. Do you think its just overdone?

  2. Actually no. I like it. The sky is awesome. The city skyline looks great. Maybe bringing it up a little more with curves (or color control points), if it is possible would work better.
     
  3. Very cool picture.
     
  4. The buildings are a little too gray for me. But the sky is ace.
     
  5. No I don't think it's overdone. Nice job on the conversation.

    i love the comp but I do think the buildings are a bit too dark.
     
  9. Agreed, plus there is just a tad of perspective warp that could easily be corrected.

    I really like the shot - how about posting it again with the buildings lightened a little?
     
  11. I like it... very dramatic! I would try to increase the contrast a bit.
