Thanks guys. Was just wondering, what do you think about the light through the window on the left? It started to bother me after a while and I was worried that it takes focus away from the sky/branches...but then a friend said it was fine, so what do you think?
It's Niagara falls, which, as (just about) everyone knows are lit up by coloured spot-lights at night. I cloned out all the little light sources, upped the contrast, burned out any extraneous or distracting elements (mostly to the left), added some canvas to the right to center it and softened the now-hard right edge of the trees. The trees on the right were lit by popping an SB-600 a couple of times while my camera exposed on the tripod. And, of course, made it monochrome.
