I captured this and edited it later. I tried to avoid the bluish colour at the bottom but couldn't help it. Need help.

To change the bluish colour you can use the HUE slider on the Saturation control and select the Blue colour from the drop down menu. Change the hue until it is a warmer colour and change the opacity to suit the photo. Use a mask to paint out the areas you don't want to change using the paint brush tool and painting on it with black.

You can use the Selective colour tool and target the cyan and blue colours to change them to a warmer colour.

A warm ( orange ) photo filter in PS will also do the job. Use the mask and paintbrush to limit the effect to the areas you want to change.

I think the photo would be better if you'd walked past the lamp and included the tower on the right more. The lamp tends to merge into the dark tones of the bushes/trees so it becomes a dark mass on one plane. It reduces the apparent depth of the photo. If the lamp had some light down its edges to separate it from the dark mass of trees I think this would be better.

I like the photo though and I think it has a good atmospheric feel.

Alan.

The blue is the light colour in shade. I would have gone for rather less exposure to richen the sky and silhouette the building. The blue would then be black. Potentially a very strong subject but the attempt to keep detail in the foreground has degraded the quality.
