      Re: @ Dusk

      Thanks! hows the gradient looking for you from the dark to lighter colors?

      On my monitor I can detect the linear progression and not so much a blend. Trying to figure out if its PP thats causing it or just my monitor?

            Re: @ Dusk

            Took a few shots at varying exposure settings as the sun was disappearing over the horizon and chose the one that produced the effect I was going for.

            * First Photo:
            - From Canon DPP for RAW to JPG conversion
            Contrast 1
            Highlight -2
            Shadow -2
            Color tone 1
            Color Saturation 2
            Sharpness 4

            - In Aperture 2:
            Crop, straighten

            * Second Photo:
            - From Canon DPP for RAW to JPG conversion
            Contrast 1
            Highlight -1
            Shadow 0
            Color tone 1
            Color Saturation 2
            Sharpness 3

            - In Aperture 2
            Crop, straighten

            I'm still learning DPP as it is the only way currently to convert the RAW files to JPG for the new camera, hence the concern with the gradient.

              Thanks for the feedback. Definitely want to know how the adjustments are going for the gradient. Need to figure out the tweaks in Canon DPP.

              The original intention was more about the sky just wish there were more clouds to break up the flatness/darkness, but also working into the lights/earth.

              I did re crop with your feedback in mind and I definitely like it too

              Both have odd crops to my eye. I feel like you left too much space in the darkened sky for it to be a shot about the lights/earth (which is busier and pulls my attention back out of the sky), but the stuff down low is too small/far away for it to be shot about that stuff.


              Ignore if you weren't looking for crit on these.

                I like the pier in the original better for 2 reasons.
                1 - the lighting has an 'half oval' effect, almost pointing into the darkened part of the photograph. Making the lights on the left more intresting.
                2 - the smallness of the human impact on the photo brings some emphasis to the idea that we should be more kind to mother earth.

                The second one - yeah I'd go with the newer, closer crop.
                Without others thinking you are good, it doesn't matter how good you think you are.
