    See the let’s play guidelines above.

    See what you can do with this image. The essence of this challenge is to choose a pleasing WB and brightness for the sky and decide whether to fix the city lights or lose them.

    Here is a link to the image.

    The embedded image is a small jpg of the raw, but use the download dng files for rework.

    Here is my attempt. I made the darkest point 5,5,5 and the lightest 240,240,240. I kept it darker than photoshop tried to gp to keep a feel for night. The image had a tendency towards blue. I cropped it a bit.

    Pretty cool Ben! I have gone from a warmer almost neutral WB to a very blue one like this too. I found it seems to look great no matter what.

    Right Jim, if I removed the blue it would almost become B&W. I am sure somebody will come up with a B&W.

    The clouds were interesting to play with along with balancing the exposure for the city lights below.

    Hi Ben :), thanks. And your Blue one is not toast. I like that you can see the blue lightening in yours!
