  1. Question, to anyone who cares to give an opinion: Should I lighten this a little, making the bridge more apparent? Or keep it dark, moody and saturated?

  2. Hard to say for sure without the other for comparison but I do like the dark and moody version. I appreciate the way the image draws me in because all the details are not apparent at first glance.

  3. I love the image. I would lighten it a little and then darken the blacks to increase contrast. But then again, is it a smoky scene from the fires? It’s hard to know what would look best (from my journalism angle) without having been there. It’s beautiful either way. I opened it in Photoshop to play with and the change I made was very minimal, so to my taste it’s very close to what I would have done

  4. Thank you. Yes it is a smoke image. The sun was barely visible a few minutes before, rising through the smoke. The lighted sky above was, for a while, brighter than the sun appeared from my vantage point. To the eye, the top of the sun, though brighter, was every bit as saturated as at the bottom. But because of… you know… the top of the sun looses the saturation in the photograph.
    Do you like this one more than the image from a week before: the horizontal image with the sun rising to the right of the towers and the headlights on the incline section?

  5. funny how this decision, when I finally sat down to make it, was obvious. I like this one better. simple, clean, graphic. this is the one of the two that I would put on my wall.

  6. Wow, that’s good to know. I trust your intuition (and it also seems to agree with your intellect). I have been so stuck on the other image because of the little twinkling headlights. I shot this one a few days afterward, after a few failed attempts at other locations and uploaded it thinking the other was a superior shot, but not certain – not able to decide. Thanks for getting back to me.
