Hey Dave,

Nice job with this second one! This was shot during sunset, but the shot was taken facing east. The coloration here does capture the color i was tryin to get when i took the photo. The sky was blue, but that lower portion with the clouds was more reddish, as was the light reflecting off of the building.

How did you adjust to bring out the color in this way?

I used NX2's Histogram double threshold where you pic a black spot and then the white spot.  You then remove the checkmark and within the pic you select where to place a gray point on the most gray thing you can find which was on one of the buildings.  After that, you adjust levels to what looks best.

Also, regarding the sharpness, i see what you meant now with the beadiness, i will have to be more careful with that! When i was trying to blur the image i was reducing the clarity, than bumping up sharpness where i wanted it to be crisper. Should i be increasing clarity rather than sharpness?

your posts have been super helpful so thank you again for taking the time!
