    Ok guys.. so I took a gazillion pictures Independence Day 2005 downtown Atlanta, and this one of the shots I ended up with that night. Haven't done anything to it just yet, except cropping. I'd love to get creative with it but somehow I feel lost. What would you do to it, if anything at all? I know it seems a little blurry, I'd be ok with that tho.

    I'd love to see you guys take it apart and put it back together, get creative with it. Thanks! :hail:

    Honestly, it looks to me like the bottom half of the image is missing. It has a lot of noise and it doesn't have any particular point of interest. It's also appears to be suffering some perspective distortion which is giving a few leaning buildings.

    Post processing could make a better technical image, but in my opinion could not fix the composition.

    You have some great shots on your web site, but I doubt this is ever going to be one of them.

    Hm, maybe I cropped it wrong. I've attached the Original below and filtered it, so most of the noise should be gone. Still hopeless? :(

    The filtered original (resized) is nicer ... and you are not happy with this one and want us to "play" with it?
    Wouldn't it then be better to have it in the "Photoshop Challenges" in the Photo Themes? Shall I move it there?

    It's just one amateur's opinion Parago, but yes, I still feel the image lacks any real point of interest and is not composed in a way pleasing to the eye.

    Yea, I think I can see what you're saying, maybe that's why I'm so desperate to have somebody come up with some ideas for it.. I just happen to like it somehow. :lol:

    LaFoto.. if you would?! Thank you so much, I'll post stuff like this in the PS section from now on!

    Right, I moved it and will also try to "be creative" with it, ok. Don't know if my creativity will suffice though... but I'll try.

    Myself, I am no good in totally changing a photo in Photoshop, such as turning the high buildings from the right to the left or some such things, I can only do the little adjustments, no more:

    Sorry, no pink sky or anything like that...

    Oops. My edit cries out for yet another treatment in NeatImage ... sorry, didn't think about that step...

    i thought i would have a go at editing it a little. after trying a couple other things with it, i went a different direction and came up with these.
