Drama in heights

By Baycan
what you re seing on the left is a minaret of a musk not a famous one and on the right its a shopping malls tower, it shows the dramatical change over the last 50 years very clearly, but I could not get both of them straight any ideas?

You do need to straighten the tower on the right, and that is done with the perspective tool. It looks like two letter L with one inverted. The exposure says night shot, or dusk. No lights much though? The effect is a touch grey overall.

Hi Ulash

You have a nice record shot and well thought out in terms of the juxtaposition of ancient and modern.

This does need brightening which is an easy levels adjustment and straightening which takes a little more patience but again can be done fairly simply depending on your editing software. The latest edition of LR has a great tool within lens correction that does a fine job of correcting verticals. Photoshop you use the transform options under edit to adjust.

There are lots of tutorials on the internet to help with perspective and skew adjustments. One example here

I hope that helps.

That is straighter and definitely looks better.
The darkening makes it more like evening, but at the expense of some detail in the minaret. Lifting the shadows is a good approach to keep detail there, though.

However, you can use the Adjustment Brush to paint a mask over the minaret and increase exposure to counter the effect of darkening the rest of the image.
Alternatively, you could paint over the rest of the image and darken that, leaving the minaret as it is.

The Adjustment Brush is a very useful tool for making selective adjustments.

Hi

Keith covers it off well. You have done a good job here and given a feel of the night starting to fall.

Good work.
