    Too much PP in the last one? That one and the other night shot were untouched. Only the first one was edited.

    I can make the second picture look better if you want me to. However, your status says that you don't want people to edit your photos...

    Go right ahead, I am curious to see what you can do. I just prefer people to ask before they do anything to them. :thumbup:

    I think the lighting is cool. That's part of why I took the picture. The warmer foot lights contrasted with the whiter lights of the condos. All of the directional lights casted shadows which gave many different textures; especially on the terrace in the bottom left.

    Adjusted the white balance quite a bit. sharpened. adjusted contrast. made trees a little more vibrant and cropped. Let me know what you think.

    I don't think there was anything wrong with the white balance. The lighting in my shot looks the same as it was when I was there. The lighting in your edit makes the walls blue.

    The trees appear over-saturated and there appears to be a dark halo around the complex. Did you use a brush for editing? If so, then I can see the trail it left.

    Thanks!

    The walls are white but the lighting is a blend of white and yellow-ish light giving off a very warm glow. Your edit made them blue though, rather than a warm white as in the original. Perhaps a little cooler temperature would look better on the image, but not so much that it turns white into blue.

    Also, I am not sure if it was the change of white balance or the over-saturation, but the room with the blue light became extremely over-saturated afterwards.
