not to discourage the photographer, but i strongly disagree with this being a DD. if you look at the night shots of cities in the 'more from deviantart' thumbnails showing similar photos, the difference is easy to see. this photo looks more like something snapped from a cell phone.. a plain view that i can see with my own eyes; little imagination. adjust highlights, shadows, contrast or HDR. include stars or clouds receiving glow from city lights instead of empty black sky. remove the bits of light below the city - they distract from the city view. nice scouted location by photographer, but needs editing and something more interesting above the city. Roppongi Hills by Panomenal for example or San Francisco Skyline by StevenDavisPhoto
Thanks! You cannot imagine how much time it took scouting Queen Anne Hill to find a spot where I could get that view. I almost gave up. I have other pictures from somewhat less optimum locations. I grew up in that city.
