    it was a pretty dreary morning so I think it turned out pretty cool. I've been playing around with different crops but I can't decide on anything. Maybe none at all?

    its quite a nice shot, i think cropping quite heavily into a letterbox style would give more impact as the sky, on this occasion and foreground is not overly interesting
    perhaps something like this....just my opinion you understand!

    Puyjapin's edit is very nice. There was too much foreground and too much sky too fully appreciate the rest of the scene in the original. Looks great now ;) I love how the cluster of buildings on the right are clearly visible while those on the left are faded off in the distance.

    best wishes

    What program did you use for the selective sharpening?

    Thanks for replying.
    I was curious if you were using NIK software.

    nah, just a bit of quick selection, feather a bit and bang the unsharp mask up quite a bit

    this is a nice edit, almost makes me wonder what a bit of color would have brought

    I like the edit, thanks! For some reason mine looked...different when I cropped it. That looks nice.
