This is a pic taken looking out of the window in the northern gate of cardiff castle.
Looking out over the motte and bailey castle mound, showing the clock tower at the castle on the right.
On the left ofthe picture it shows a 1960s (i think) style office block, and then beyond that the millenium stadium.

Ive added a bit of mist using two different layers, blended together using the pin light, and playing with the opacity, black levels.

Let my know what you all think.

Im afraid this doesnt work at all for me Adam, I can see the effect that youre going for, but the mist doesnt look realistic. Also the concept of the mists of time can work with the old building on the right, but including the modern doesnt go with the theme. I think if you has moved to the left (I dont know whats to the right of the old building though) it may work better. There is also some treatment applied that gives the impression of strong colour noise in the foreground hill.


Check out the techniques section here on EPZ for tips on how to add mist, - and there may also be videos in the EPZ TV section.

You really should have left that mist off - it doesn't look like mist at all. Initially assumed it was flare on the window glass. Difficult to be subjective after that, but the bank, right foreground, is also very dominating compositionally.
