Re: Underexposed
In reply to sidepocket, Mar 23, 2012

I could bump it up a little in exposure, but I really wanted the foreground to be black. I had done some test shots to see where the shutter should be, and even 1/3 EV more expsoure the light from the buildings was becoming blown out.

The "warmness" comes from all the orange lights used from the buildings. Lots of light pollution obviously, and was magnified on a hazy day. I was looking for more of a shot of just being there, not necessarily one that is artistic per-se. While I like the shot you posted, this would have been entirely unrealistic. Was your shot taken at dawn or sunset by chance?
