Shot from the top floor of a car park in Hong Kong. Without a tripod, I had to resort to a handy wall, which did not help ccomposition one bit. After cropping, some small squiggly lines from lights on the passing boat (blurred due to long exposure) had to be removed. I added the flare to disguise a burnt-out area of the building. It reminded me a little of Blade Runner - so it stays!

nicely disguised flare, it adds more dimension to the city skyline......a little more contrast would not hurt to bring out the buildings outline....just a friendly opinion, regards.
