    Is that a star filter?

    Anyway, if you select the upper dark portion of the image and play with the brightness/contrast and saturation you could make a "wow" image outta this me thinks.

    for me there's too much empty space at the top. i think you need to lower your camera (to a little bit above the top of the tower) so we can see more of the ground, and which will put those line of stars at about one third of the picture. then, like bifurcator said, bring out more of the skyscrapers in the back by playing with levels and curves.

    that's sears tower in chicago right? if you walk all the way down to the planetarium building you can get a great view of the skyline at night.

    So your saying in photoshop there is a way to select a certain part of a picture and adjust the brightness and saturation? How is this done from a photoshop newbie.

    For once i won't reccomend cropping. I think the dead area at the top really makes the city stand out.

    this was just a random pic, i was actually on the rooftop of a garage taking car pictures. so all that it is in the bottom are roofs and some street and board signs, but thanks, i just tried it.
