    I was trying to go with the cold, depressed look, but im not so sure if i succeeded :hsugh: im already aware of the pilfering and lack of cropping, but i'd appreciate any advice on the color and composition and such. :dunno:

    original:

    quick photoshop:

    i assume too much blue...

    edit: i really just want criticism on the colors. thats really all i PS'ed yet. i realize its noisy and pilfered and all that good stuff

    dont try to make fancy compostions yet. next time maybe just include 1 whole building, some what centered.

    Hmm.. If by any chance you have any information left in the sky, try blowing it up and see how it looks.

    Also I would probably turn fill lights down and up the contrast a bit.

    Not sure what you did in PS, but if you want less reds try desating those specific tones instead of going all blue.

    Agreed the Moon is distracting. and always remember the rule of thirds.
    a third of this a third of that and a third of the subject.

    I would go B&W, add some contrast, and maybe add some noise. :dunno: If you really wanted to keep it in color you could just go into hue/sat and pull down the saturation of some of those reds, that way it won't look like you simply colored everything blue.

    Nothing interesting to keep my interest and it looks like the building is falling over.
