    I know you said you liked how the color was on 1 but that looks like a WB issue. It's a bit warm. The composition isn't to bad. I like it but if the colors were a bit cooler it would most likely enhance it.

    Why does it say:
    White balance "unknown"? I think that's the problem

    Huh?

    op-

    I think the composition is decent in the first one, but the white balance is definitely way off.

    The one of the moon and the skyline is nice, but it would have been a bit better if the crop was just a little closer to make the moon larger.

    Thanks everyone. and yea tyler I think im gonna try the first shot again with diff white balance settings or try to change that one in PPing to see which one works better. also ill try a tighter crop to see what difference it makes.

    as for the double post he had a post number of 666 and wanted to get rid of it asap

    It may "look" like that outside the dorm room, but I garauntee the light thats spilling from the unnatural light source is not so powerful to render everything in that tone. White balance is more than off, and no amount of PP is going to be able to pull that back in.

    Yeah, man give it a shot. Post it up here so we can see the before/after.

    And I didn't know people were that superstitious about forum posts. Haha.
