Re: Architecture Retouch

Nice job... I can see why this took so long. The bright lights were definitely a challenge.

Added clouds are a real plus.

Did you intentionally leave out the ads in the final edition.

Re: Architecture Retouch

i just noticed that the highlight detail seems to be blown out, is that intentional?

Re: Architecture Retouch

I'm sorry not to be on the band wagon here, but the lights are blown out, the sky looks like it has been dropped in i.e not realistic, no colour in the wall-----billboard ads; you took out the color which I liked, but that's a style/taste thing . There is nice detail in the steel under the bridge. You say it took 10-15 hrs. It's hard for me to see that amount of work. I'm not flaming, just commenting.

Re: Architecture Retouch

A nice job, OP, just let down by some inaccurate masking around the railings near the TLH corner, and an odd black spot beneath a small light near the BLH corner. Otherwise, great work!
