This is one of those shots where it looked better in my mind. Any input of what I could have done better will be greatly appreciated.

I like the shot. Please forgive me for playing with your photo. Maybe pump it up in Photoshop and don't tell anyone you did it.

To the OP: Very cool city scape - a nice photo for sure.

It looks like a good vantage point. What you "could have done":
- wait for better light, sunset or sunrise, full moon etc.
- wait for some foreground action like a ferry or a yacht.

Thanks for your suggestion. I wanted to keep it low with the processing but your version is really quite good.

That's a problem when traveling, one has to take what is given. Maybe on my next visit to Italy :-)

I usually like to practice what you suggested, unfortunately there isn't seem to be much action in that part of the lake.


Thank you for your thoughtful suggestions!

Sometimes the weather is just what it is and when that happens, just do the best you can (and you did great) then when you get home save it in PS or whatever. Here is my take on your photo. Again, I think that you did fine.
