Wonderful shot and I love the conversion you did here if in fact there is one. You wouldn't mind letting us know how you got the image looking the way it did? THanks and again, just a wonderful shot.

Hi. Great that you liked it.
1. You must shoot it with your girlfriend. IT gets more romantic...
2. I shot a well exposed RAW photo. The histogram should be covered with information. no clipping, just information.
3. Got 3 different exposures from it in Silkypix and with Photomatix created a HDR photo.
4. In CS3 with the marker or marque, don't remember right now, split the photo in 2: the sky and the town. Played with the levels a bit ( wanted to get more highlight in formation to enhance the drama)
5. Another layer mask with the same split but creating a black&white mask.
6. Play with the sliders untill you get the desired result. Use the tint you need. Here: yellow with low saturation and that's it.

Oh. the refine adges. adjust them to have a continuing delimitation between the two parts of the photo.
