    I took this shot in Downtown Vancouver of the Virgin Mary perched on the Cathedral. I have a good day for the shot but a unusable sky.

    I am new to photoshop and just figured out layers. I put the new sky in and wanted to get some opinions on it.

    Always looking to improve. Thanks

    Off-centre, and the... colours are sort of awkward together... but it might just be me.

    I agree, a black/gray sky would look better maybe even with a full moon

    I was going for a purple to offset the yellow in the rosary beads... The more I shot in Monochrome the more I am interested in it.

    I got home after work and changed up the sky. I also made the whole picture monochrome. Let me know what you think. I think the monochrome version is better.

    I have had a long day and this photo is not embeding right. I give up for now. check the link below. thanks
    and sorry

    My 2 cents...

    The angle is strange, looks like it's leaning back.
    If you're cropping the sides out, do it symmetrically.
    Is the watermark necessary?
    Is it me or is the image noisy?
