    whoa, i can see what you mean when you say it looks fake. that looks crazy! i thinks its because the lighting on the buildings is so much different from the lighting on the mountains behind.

    This is a situation where it might serve you well to shoot with a polarizing filter, which should help cut down on some of the haze in the background and reduce a bit of the contrast between the buildings and the mountains. Also, the horizon isn't totally level. But other than that, it's a great shot.

    im gonna guess you shot this at a large focal length (200mm) or so.

    if so, long focal lengths compress depth which would be why this looks weird.
    if its not a long focal length...well then ill be damned...
